Champagne Lanson ditches Le Black Label Brut

After db broke news of the planned move earlier this year, Lanson has now officially announced that it is ditching its best-selling Le Black Label Brut as it releases Le Black Label Création.

Launched this week, the new name for Lanson’s Brut NV has been chosen to draw attention to the fact that each release from the Champagne house has its own character, which relates to the dominant and youn...

The Story

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 supplying since 1900. The authentic style of Le Black Label Brut is crafted from a rich and diverse palette of wines that highlight the full diversity of Champagne terroir.

The colour is light and clear with amber highlights and a smattering of fine bubbles.Fruity notes of William pear, apple and citrus fruits compliment the aromas of freshly baked pastries. Bouquets of ripe orchard fruit, tangerine, lemon
and grapefruit freshen the palate delivering a fresh sensation. Notes of brioche and dried fruit add a touch of maturity.

Pale lemon green colour. Fragrant and elegant nose of white flowers, peach and green apple. Beginning of autolytic complexity. Bright refreshing palate with a lemony twist. Linear, focused and long.

De använder inte malolaktisk jäsning, vilket gör att standardvinerna kan kännas lite sura och kartiga som unga. Lanson Black Label är en av de mest kända champagnerna trots sin obarmhärtiga hårdhet. Hos Lanson undviker man den malolaktiska jäsningen, vilket leder till vassa, stickiga viner när kroppen och extraktet saknas. Vinet åldras faktiskt väldigt väl, men då måste man besitta ett rejält tålamod.
