all ratings out of 100 points.
An emblematic cuvée, Lanson Black Label owes its name to Victor Lanson, a passionate visionary who in 1937 wished to pay homage to the key market of the House at the time, Great Britain. 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.
Light 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. - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media
