Champagne Lanson “Black Label” Brut Non-Vintage Magnum

R1,750.00 inc. VAT
"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

Champagne Lanson “Clos Lanson” Blanc de Blancs Brut 2006

R3,100.00 inc. VAT
"The 2006 Clos Lanson is bright, focused and exceptionally pure. Veins of underlying acidity and chalkiness give the 2006 its super-distinctive, saline-driven personality. Lemon peel, white flowers, chalk and white pepper develop in the glass, adding further dimensions of nuance. With time in the glass, the 2006 acquires lovely textural brilliance, but it remains tense, crystalline and absolutely impeccable in its purity. The aromatics could use a bit more finesse and freshness, but otherwise this is a solid debut. Clos Lanson is fermented entirely in barrel, but the oak is very nicely integrated. Disgorged December, 2014." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Champagne Lanson “Clos Lanson” Blanc de Blancs Brut 2007

R3,510.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in July 2016 with only three grams per liter dosage, the 2007 Brut Blanc de Blancs Clos Lanson is showing very well indeed, unwinding in the glass with notes of dried white flowers, citrus oil, toasted brioche, oyster shell and smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and vibrant, with a racy spine of acidity, good concentration and chalky structuring extract. This is quite a tightly knit, tensile wine, despite the warm mesoclimate and two years on cork, which suggests it will enjoy a long future" - William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson “Gold Label” Brut Vintage 2008 Magnum

R2,510.00 inc. VAT
"In all probability the finest rendition of this cuvée since 1996, Lanson's 2008 Brut Vintage Gold Label is an impressive wine in the making, unwinding in the glass with aromas of white flowers, lemon oil, orange rind, apple and freshly baked sourdough. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with a concentrated but tight-knit profile that exemplifies the house's non-malo style, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. It's a terrific value in the world of seriously age-worthy Champagne." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson “Gold Label” Brut Vintage Magnum 2005

R2,200.00 inc. VAT
"Yellow-golden in color, the 2005 Gold Label Vintage Brut has a deep, ripe and vinous nose. Rich, ripe and full on the palate, with finesse, elegance and a good, pretty long finish, this is a complex cuvée that is built more on maturity than freshness this year." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson “Le Vintage” Brut 2009

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in February 2017, Lanson's 2009 Brut Vintage Gold Label is more immediate than its 2008 predecessor, bursting from the glass with notes of citrus oil, green apples, fresh peach and wheat toast. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and charming, it's bright and penetrating, but also comparatively giving and approachable for a young-vintage Lanson." - William Kelly, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson “Clos Lanson” Blanc de Blancs Brut 2006 Magnum

R6,560.00 inc. VAT
"From the immured one-hectare vineyard on the top of the hill, which also harbors the cellar of Champagne Lanson that dates back into the 18th century, the 2006 Clos Lanson is 100% first press Chardonnay from a very fine, chalky soil. It was fermented and aged in Argonne oak until spring 2007 (no malolactic fermentation), and disgorged after seven and a half years on the lees in December 2014 as Brut Nature with a dosage of three grams per liter. This bright yellow-golden colored prestige Champagne offers a brilliant nose of pure and ripe Chardonnay, along with delicate chalky flavors. Full and round on the palate, with a nice freshness and purity, this is a very elegant and well-balanced Blanc de Blancs. it has an aromatic as well as clear, fresh and mineral finish. This very first release has a very good length and characteristic mineral taste, with iodine notes along with ripe fruit and vanilla brioche flavors in the finish. This is a great new entry in the Lanson portfolio and it will improve with age" - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson Gold Label Brut Vintage 1990

Nice glowing golden colour. Quite nettly and herbaceous at first, the nose reveals lots of crisp citrus fruit and over-ripe pear, but then a little toasty, biscuity richness shows through.
