Langham Corallian Classic Extra Brut

A big rich Chardonnay focussed Dorset Sparklinh with an elegant tartness.

A Chardonnay dominant cuvée which is citrus led, with mineral & saline notes, suited to all occasions; particularly in the spring & summer months.  The Corallian drinks equally well on its own or particularly with fish dishes. Made with a base vintage 2019 and 24% reserve wine, is a blend of 81% Chardonnay, 11% Pinot Noir, 8% Pinot Meunier. 

Pale golden in colour and an intense nose. Aromas of baked apple, lemon, peach yoghurt and a subtle toastiness. The palate is rich with notes of nectarine, flint and salinity. There is a citrus driven acidity with hints of peaches and cream. This wine is dry and well weighted with a long balanced acidity.

All fruit for this wine was sourced from Langhams single site in rural Dorset. The Crawthorne vineyard consists of 12 hectares planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and is located on a sheltered south facing slope. The long growing season here and the precise viticulture helps Langham get the best out of each and every grape.

The Langham Estate

The Langham Estate

The Langham estate was acquired by John Langham in 1980. The vineyard was originally established at Bingham’s Melcombe, a grade 1 listed manor house situated on the estate by John Langham on a very small scale. In 2009 John’s son, Justin Langham, decided to develop his father’s idea into a commercial venture, and planted 30 acres of vines on their land at Crawthorne Farm, a few miles from Bingham’s Melcombe House.

With a south-facing aspect, chalk soils and a unique microclimate, Crawthorne Vineyard provides the perfect terroir for ripening the classic Champagne varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. All the grapes are handpicked, and rigorous vineyard selection ensures only the highest quality grapes arrive at the winery.
