Langham Wine Estate reveals Blanc de Noirs 2013

07 December, 2017

Langham Wine Estate has added Langham Blanc de Noirs 2013 to its portfolio in time for Christmas.

The wine, which is rich gold in colour, is a blend of 58% Pinot Noir and 42% Pinot Meunier. The nose is “alive with red fruit, violet and brioche aromas”, according to the company, and these flavours are joined by citrus fruit on the palate.

Daniel Ham, winemaker, said: “The decision to produce a Blanc de Noirs followed a successful Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier harvest in 2013. The grapes, both black varieties, were picked from 11 to 24 October and gentle pressed, whole bunch, in a pneumatic press. Fermentation took place in steel vats and oak barrels and the wine was then left to age on its lees for six months before being bottled. Secondary fermentation in the bottle has resulted in a fine effervescence with a delicious complexity derived from 24 months lees ageing.”

The wine is priced at £27.
