Champagne Lanson Black Label Brut NV

Champagne, FranceBlack Label is a fabulous introduction to champagne, from its 50/35/15 combination of pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier, selected from more than 100 villages. Its 30 percent reserve wines span ten vintages back to 1995. A small percentage goes through malolactic fermentation before it is all aged for three years on lees before disgorgement in 2020, and another six month rest before shipping. I love the mix of power and elegance here. Toasted almonds, citrus, creamy, chalky mineral notes spill across the palate and pull you into the wine with a special force. Crunchy Vancouver Island oysters on the half shell are the perfect ticket.Tasted: 11 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 73.00 select private retailers ON 57.00 LCBO AB 53.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne LansonDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
