Do not be fooled by the Maltese Cross and the black uniform that Lanson wears, it is not a member of the St John Ambulance. It cant patch up minor cuts and grazes, it doesnt know what the acronym DRAB stands for and its ineffective at employing the recovery position. However, what this Champagne lacks in basic First Aid knowledge, it more than makes up for in consistency, reputation and quality. Lanson with it's fresh 'non-malolactic' style, puts a smile on any face, but we dont recommend administering it at the scene of an accident.
If you are looking for real consistency, few of the famous Champagnes are as reliable as Lanson Black Label Brut NV. Jane MacQuitty of The Times has described it as her “favourite big-name, non-vintage bargain” and says it “has been a triumph for years, all glorious, light, lively, lemon biscuit-styled fruit”. We say that this classic Champagne, which has been aged for 3 years and blends grapes from 40-50 different crus, has aromas of honey-topped toast and spring flowers, followed by flavours of ripe citrus, crisp apple and lemony brioche. It is a great tipple with fresh fish dishes (why not try it with sashimi or ceviche), breakfast pastries or celebrations in the sunshine.
