Lanson ‘Rosé Label’ Champagne Brut NV

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 18-Jan-2016
Bright, light, peach-pink colours with some depth, lighter edged. The bubbles are very fine and the bead quite persistent. The nose is fine and fresh with full aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with red floral nuances and delicate bready and yeasty autolytic notes, unfolding hints of brioche and toast. The aromatics build in depth and intensity with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the mouthfeel is lively with vibrant and sweet fruit flavours of stonefruits with subtle red floral notes. Delicate bread and yeast autolysis adds to the interest. Refreshing acidity enlivens the mouthfeel and carries the flavours along a fine-textured line with integrated effervescence adding to the energy. The wine leads to a light bready-nuanced finish. This is a lively, delicate rosé Champagne with a fine-textured line. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2+ years. A blend of 53% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier, with 50-60 different crus, fermented to 12.5% alc. and 8 g/L dosage, the wine aged 3 year on lees. 18.0+/20 Jan 2016 RRP $70.00
