After an in-depth restructuring of its range of Champagnes, Maison Lanson is now revealing two new cuvées within its Coeur de Gamme: Le Black Reserve and Le Blancs de Blancs.
As soon as Winemaker Hervé Dantan arrived in 2013, he began creating these two cuvées with the desire to bring Lanson Champagnes further into the world of gastronomy.
LE BLACK RESERVE, FRESHNESS AND PLENITUDE
Non-vintage brut champagne, combining freshness, complexity and fullness, Le Black Réserve is a descendant of the Black Label, retaining the same freshness and vitality but with a more gastronomic vocation and a more thorough work of blending.
The style of Le Black Réserve is the result of unique expertise based on:
• A selection of finest Crus of Champagne including 70% of Grands and Premiers Crus. • The original Champagne vinification method with predominantly non malolactic fermentation, for incomparable freshness.
• 45% of reserve wines come from a collection of Grands and Premiers Crus matured in oak casks and spread over nearly 20 years to offer maturity, fullness and delicacy. • A longer ageing time in cellar for a minimum of 5 years.
This cuvée is composed of 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. LE BLANC DE BLANCS, VITALITY AND DELICACY
For this 100% Chardonnay cuvée, Hervé Dantan wanted to magnify the freshness of the Chardonnay by combining it with the vitality and elegance of the Lanson style. With its golden colour and very fine bubbles, its fresh and tonic aromas in the mouth, this cuvée is a great Champagne for an aperitif and for gastronomy.
The fresh and aromatic style of Le Blanc de Blancs is the result of a unique expertise based on: • A precise selection of 15 Crus go into Le Blanc de Blancs blend, 70% of which are Grands and Premiers Crus, including the villages of Oger, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Vertus and Trépail.
• The original Champagne vinification method with predominantly non-malolactic fermentation, for incomparable freshness.
• 45% reserve wines come from a unique collection of Grands and Premiers Crus matured in oak casks and spread over nearly 20 years.
