1976 Lanson Vintage Collection Brut Champagne 1.5L

SKU #1130143

These magnums are only available on a special order basis- and will be disgorged fresh for you in Reims before being shipped to K&L. This vintage was the hottest of the 20th century and a rare (at the time!) August harvest in Champagne. The wine has a light gold color and a super bright nose of wild raspberries- it is so generous that it is hard to believe! On the palate it has tense Pinot Noir fruit that reminds me of Volnay. This is definitely a bottle for the connoisseur! -Gary Westby, K&L

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
