Champagne Lanson Le Rosé Brut Rosé NV

Champagne, FranceRosé Champagne is hot, but it is old news at Lanson where they have been making a stylish, delicate pale pink bubble since the 1950s, which is one of the first rosé releases in Champagne. The colour is pink salmon courtesy of the 53/32/13 pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier with a small amount of still pinot noir from Bouzy for colour. Expect a whiff of toasted lees and biscuit, a reflection of 30% reserve wine, combined with mineral, citrus, baked pear. There is a clear freshness thanks to a no malolactic Lanson policy. There is plenty more to entice on the palate, including nutty, toasty, mineral, cherry streaked with citrus and green apple. An impressive, dry, crisp, elegant rosé that doesn’t quit in the glass. Perfect for lightly sauteed BC prawns.
