Langham Culver Classic Cuvée NV, Dorset, England, GBP £27.50

Outside England’s ‘Golden Triangle’ of Sussex, Hampshire and Kent, Langham Estate was set up at Dorchester in Dorset in 2009 by Justin Langham and has since become an English sparkling wine force to be reckoned with.

As distinct from the chardonnay-dominant Corallian Classic Cuvée, pinot noir is the dominant variety in the mid-gold Culver, which is richly-toasty in aroma with lots of nutty autolysis notes mingling with berry fruit; very Champagne-like in style, followed by a full-flavoured, fine mousse of bubbles with rich malty elements combining in an expressive fizz with savour and finesse.
