Le Black Label Brut owes its iconic name to Victor Lanson who gave it in 1937, both as a proof of openness to the world and as a tribute to the Royal Court of England which Lanson has been officially supplying since 1900. This champagne is a balanced alliance of vitality and finesse, freshness and elegance, characteristic of the Lanson Style.

Description

A combination of 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier from numerous crus selected by the Winemaker and blended from almost ten different years. Lanson Black Label is further enhanced by three years resting in the cellar, including 6 months following disgorging, at which point it reaches perfect maturation. Lanson Black Label is a balanced alliance of power and elegance, freshness and complexity. It has the taste of spring and subtle hints of long-lasting honeydew. Notes of ripe and citrus fruits give a sensation of lightness and fullness with a long, fresh finish.

Decanter – 92 points

50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier from 100 villages in all, and including 30% reserves from 10 vintages back to 1995; a small proportion now being produced with malolactic. Black Label remains the confident barometer of Lanson, and Hervé Dantan’s first blend is a class act, a resounding statement of his talent in preserving the style and integrity of the house while meticulously polishing the edges. It’s a very important cuvée in the grand scheme of Champagne: one of the best and most consistent of the bargain set. (TS) Aug/2020

Wine Spectator – 91 Points

Racy acidity is tightly meshed to flavors of ripe red and black currant, preserved lemon, chopped almond and honeycomb in this sleek Champagne, with a fine, chalky bead. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.

Wine Enthusiast – 92 Points

This classic non vintage cuvée has a dominance of red grapes. A rich wine, it shows dryness as well as balanced acidity and ripe spice. It is easy to enjoy and ready to drink. ROGER VOSS Dec/2021
