Champagne Lanson Le Rosé Brut Rosé NV

Champagne, FranceLanson has been making this friendly rosé since the 1950s. The current incarnation blends 53% pinot noir, 32% chardonnay, and 15% pinot meunier, with a 7% splash of still pinot noir and pinot meunier for colour. As per house style, no malolactic fermentation is employed in the primary ferment. There are 35% reserve wines in the mix, and the blend comes from 100 different crus, 50% of which are GC and 1er. My bottle was based on 2016 and was disgorged in October 2021 with eight g/L. Doughy and toasty cherry brioche, raspberry, and red apple fill the cushy core, with perfumed cherry blossoms adding allure to the cinnamon-spiced finish. There's a bright lemon thread throughout, driving this to the humming finish. Very friendly, with the dosage and red fruit making this an easy pairing for poultry/salmon/mushroom dishes.Tasted: 19 April 2022Tasted by: Prices:
