Lanson "Black Label" Brut Champagne

SKU #993416 91 points John Gilman

 The present bottling of Lanson Blanc Label in the market was disgorged in October of 2017. The wine is drinking very nicely, offering up a complex nose of apple, a touch of peach, lovely soil tones, fresh-baked bread and incipient smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and focused, with a good core, pinpoint bubbles, fine acids and a long, complex and well-balanced finish. This has the cut and backend bounce of a non-malo bubbly, but with the acids beautifully buffered. A fine Brut NV.  (8/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

 A firm Champagne, with an almost monolithic frame of acidity, softened somewhat by a lacy mousse that conveys a delicate mesh of black cherry, lemon granita, pastry and candied ginger flavors. (AN)  (11/2018)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Lanson's big seller remains crisp and fruity, with a tight, bright character and a mineral texture. Without any malolactic fermentation, the wine retains freshness and delicious acidity. (RV)  (12/2018)

Wine & Spirits

 Generously round, this is an easy, approachable Champagne with toasty scents and gentle lime-like acidity. It has the texture of a cream puff, making it an appealing aperitif.  (12/2018)

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!

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.
