The style of this champagne blend is constant throughout the years, a balance between power and elegance, strong wine aromas and finesse, truly characteristic of the Lanson style. After ageing for a minimum of 3 years in the cellars, Lanson Black Label is harmonious and fully matured. It has a brilliant, clear colour with amber highlights and a joyful stream of fine bubbles. The nose reveals springtime aromas as well as some subtle "toasty" and honey notes. On the palate the bouquet of ripe fruits and citrus give the wine a well-rounded feel, but one that is light with its fresh finish.

Wine SpectatorThis creamy Champagne is bright and citrusy, offering an expressive and well-meshed mix of ripe blackberry, pastry dough and pickled ginger flavors. Racy finish. Disgorged October 2016. Drink now through 2021.

VinousLight gold. Aromas of nectarine, pear and lemon curd, with subtle ginger, lees and floral accents. Sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and pick up spiciness and a chalky nuance with air. Powerful yet lithe and focused, finishing with very good clarity and length and lingering spiciness.

Wine Enthusiast**Editors' Choice** Like most Lanson wines, this nonvintage cuvée is a blend dominated by red grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier). Ripe while also crisp and stylish, it has weight and richness while remaining well to the dry side of Brut. The bottling is ready to drink.
