Two years ageing in over four miles of cellars, under the Cellar Master's expert eye, provide the essential components for perfect maturation. A brilliant and clear wine, straw coloured with hints of amber. Lively with a fine and persistent bead. The impression is one of vitality and scents of spring mixed with a touch of 'toast' and honey. A palate of ripe fruit and citrus hints creates a wine that is full, fruity and light.
Back on Top: Lanson Black Label Champagne NV After years out of the Champagne list, this label has been rediscovered and is again a gorgeous drink. With soft bubbles, long biscuit and yeast flavours, it has an ideal clean acid finish. It's a great aperitif. Donna Hay
Lanson Black Label Brut NV, Flinty, smoky and grilled nut smelling, with cherry pit and marzipan; fruit cake like. Tight and nutty in the mouth, with lemon peel, black cherry and complex Parmesan lees characters. A long, lingering, pithy finish. First class medium bodied Champagne. Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age
