A quality Champagne, loved the world over and is a showcase for the ideas and character of those making it.

Three grape varieties come into making of Lanson Brut: Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (black grapes) and Chardonnay (white grapes). An impressive range of 40 to 50 crus are blended together to form this Champagne and they are all vivified separately so the cellar master has an exceptional choice of aromas available to him, thus guaranteeing the consistent Lanson taste at all times.

Lanson is one of the very few Champagne Houses not practising malolactic fermentation, a fact to be noted in Champagne. This Lanson tradition allows wines to develop to the full and to better their wealth of aromas. 3 Years ageing in over 4 miles of cellars, combined with the cellar master's expertise, are essential components of perfect maturing.

Lanson Brut's brilliant and clear colour is reminiscent of the straw colour and hints of amber characteristic of the Pinot Noir grape. In the glass, it is lively with a fine string of bubbles.

On the nose, the impression is one of vitality and scents of spring, mixed with a touch of 'toast' and honey.

To the palate are bouquets of ripe fruit and citrus fruit to create a sensation of fullness, fruitiness and lightness. A pleasant racy wine with a long and lingering taste.

'For the past two years this has been the best and most consistent non-vintage from any of the big Grandes Marques'. Tom Stevenson. The Wine Report 2009; Champagne Report 2009.

Grape: 35% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier.
