This Christmas, Champagne Lanson unveils its 257th blend of the famously crafted Le Black Création. The latest multi-vintage blend is the perfect companion for a multitude of festive nourishment – from hors d’oeuvres to decadent desserts. Better still, it’s a wonderful gift for an oenophile friend or foodie.
Boasting a fresh and elegant style unique to its creation, each bottle is aged for more than four years in the cellars, all whilst retaining the vitality and aromatic richness that Lanson Champagne is known for.
A feast for the senses – on the nose, there is a bouquet of tangy fruit aromas with William pear, apple, and citrus. On the palate, ripe orchard fruit and hints of mandarin, lemon and grapefruit appear. Maturity is also expressed through notes of brioche and dried fruit. Grapes are meticulously selected from over 100 of the finest Crus of Champagne, including 50% of Grand and Premier crus in historical cornerstones such as Dizy, Verzenay and Trépail.
It pairs wonderfully with seasonal Canapés such as porcini mushroom arancini and parmesan polenta bites, as well as sweet courses such as a velvety dark chocolate tart.
Champagne Lanson’s Le Black Création is available now from Sainsbury’s – online and in stores nationwide. RRP £41.00.
