Winemaker's Notes:

Champagne Lanson was founded in 1760 and is one of the oldest Grande Marque Champagne Houses. Lanson is the fourth largest Champagne House in the world and is best known for its Brut Non Vintage, the Lanson Black Label. Lanson is one of the very few Champagne Houses which avoids the malolactic fermentation. This practice retains the freshness and fruitiness of each cuvee and enables the wines to age longer.

Aged a minimum of three years, the Lanson Black Label is a blend of 35 % chardonnay, 50% pinot noir, and 15% pinot meunier. An impressive range of 40 to 50 crus are blended together to form this Brut Champagne. They are vinified separately to provide the cellar master with an exceptional choice of aromas, thus guaranteeing the consistent Lanson style. The nose provides an impression of vitality and scents of spring mixed with a touch of "toast" and honey. The palate reveals a bouquet of ripe fruits and citrus fruits.
