Champagne Brut 'Black Label' Lanson

Lanson's Champagne Black Label is a Brut with a strong personality, baptized with an English name in 1937 in homage to the British Royal Family, of which the Maison was a supplier. In the glass it reveals an intense straw yellow and a fine and creamy perlage. With the aging of about 36 months in bottle it develops a fruity bouquet of green apple, with toasted notes and brioches. The sip is creamy and fruity, with a pleasant mineral persistence
