 Firm and smoky, offering flavors of candied cherry, bread dough, lemon zest and toasted raisin bread, with a lively bead. Moderate finish. Drink now through 2015.  (12/ 2012)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light gold. Pungent bouquet evokes poached pear, mango and honey. Ripe and broad, with warm tropical fruit flavors and a touch of smokiness on the back end. Shows good heft on the clinging, slightly warm finish.  (12/ 2011)

Wine Enthusiast

 Lanson's Black Label is one of the most familiar Champagne brands, well known for its rich but dry style. It needs some bottle age—as has happened with this bottling—to soften the crispness. The wine is rounded out with toast, puff pastry and freshened with apple skins.  (12/ 2009)

K&L Notes

This house is making a big comeback. A big toasty nose leads to a convincing, rich palate impression and a clean, refreshing finish. The wine is made from 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier and vinified without malolactic fermentation. The fruit comes from all Grand and Premier Cru areas within Champagne and it tastes like it! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

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.
