Lanson Champagne at Auslese

Champagne Lanson returns!
It's exciting news that Champagne Lanson is back in South Africa, as it is one of our all time favourite marques. Made without any malolactic fermentation these champagnes remain fresh and invigorating even with age, and they age extremely well. We were invited to Auslese last week, to taste the range that will now be available on sale here
The Lanson brand
Emmanuel Gantet, Export Manager for Lanson, with local representative Karen Visser and Morgan Delacloche, National Sales Manager, ‎Great Domaines of the World, with the line up of the wines we tasted, all soon to be available in South Africa
The Black Label Brut is the entry level Champagne, clean and crisp and elegant with a very fine mousse. We also tasted two vintages and the beautiful Rosé made from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunière and Chardonnay
Chef Harald Bresselschmidt had produced some lovely canapés to go with the different champagnes
and there were fresh oysters
Drinking a toast to Lanson's return. You can expect to see them appearing on top restaurants and hotels wine lists and find them in some of the specialist wine merchants
