Lanson Brut Rosé Champagne
Fresh and aromatic, with an overtone of orchard blossom to flavors of black cherry candy, gumdrop, pound cake and fresh ginger. Offers a clean, minerally finish. Drink now through 2017.
This dry, racy rosť has great toastiness and an exceptionally fine bead. It is composed of 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier, with 7% Bouzy rouge giving the Champagne its color. It has been aged for three years on the lees and is dosed at only 9 grams per liter. Like all of Lanson's Champagnes, the wine is fermented in stainless steel without malolactic.
