Wine Review: Lanson Le Black Creation 257 Brut NV Champagne (Black Label)

Wine Types
For today’s tasting Wine-Searcher’s Wine Director, David Allen MW, looks at the latest interpretation of a very well known Champagne brand Lanson and reviews the changes involved in the move to calling it Le Black Creation. He gives the production details for this iteration, the Creation 257.

Champagne Lanson is a historic Champagne house in Reims, well-known for the production of its flagship Black Label cuvée. It was established by Francis Delamotte in 1760 to focus on exporting champagne to foreign markets.

The Black Label Brut is often a strong performer in blind tastings, often attributed to the combination of extra sweetness in the dosage combined with crisp acidity levels. This has traditionally been supplemented by the absence of malolactic fermentation. The gold-label vintage wine attracts acclaim for its longevity and value for money, and is also zesty and crisp in style. Many of Lanson’s wines are Pinot Noir-dominant, with smaller amounts of Chardonnay and sometimes Pinot Meunier.

In addition, Lanson also produces a Brut, Blanc de Blancs and a Rosé in the Extra Age series, based on a combination of older vintages. The range is topped by a similar trio of Noble Cuvée wines, made from selected Grand Cru vineyards.

The Clos Lanson is the house’s prestige release, made from oak-aged base wines with grapes from a walled hectare (2.5 acre) plot opposite the Notre Dame de Reims Cathedral and nearby the Lanson cellars. The inaugural vintage was in 2006.
