Lanson was founded in 1760 and was one of the very first Champagne Houses to be established. Unusually for a non-vintage champagne, and somewhat controversially, Lanson do not use malolatic fermentation. Black Label comprises: 35% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/09/2014
(sample disgorged Nov-2013) Clear, pale golden yellow with persistent small bubbles.
Lemon meringue pie and lemon sherbet served with toast and honey. Very faint crispy bacon-like whiffs.
Citrus led, high acidity, steely, tart and zingy
Lingering lemon zest and citric acidy. Overall: Perfect for those seeking a zingy citrus led champagne.
