Direct from Lanson Cellars - the Noble Cuvée is the ultimate expression of the Lanson style based on a rigorous selection of grapes exclusively from Grands Crus vineyards Verzenay, Avize and Oger. For the Brut, only 10 vintages were selected in the last 30 years, which makes this mature Champagne something very special indeed.
97+ Points - Peter Robinson "Simply exquisite! The nose gives everything that I love about vintage Champagne and I could almost be satisfied just sitting there and smelling, getting lost in its dense, bready aromas. They fill the glass (Zalto universal) with toasted brioche, oatmeal, grapefruit peel and bruised apple. The years in bottle have done wonders, creating a rich toasty, almost creamy palate, generous and concentrated, supported by perfectly judged acidity keeping the whole experience fresh and vibrant with flavours of citrus peel and a touch of sherbet lemon. The wine continues to evolve in the glass and I recommend leaving the bottle out of the fridge after opening allowing it to keep developing, each glass more satisfying than the last and an easy bottle to finish. It's drinking so well now but will continue for many more years. Only produced in the very best years, just ten vintages in the last thirty, this is truly magnificent wine and mind blowing for the price." Tasted 29/3/19
94 Points - James Suckling "Quite bright, fine and elegant on the nose. The complexity is subtly delivered, with lime and lemon citrus as the focus on the nose. The palate has lime sorbet flavor, really fine, focused acidity and a great sense of evenness. The duality of power and grace is quite masterfully delivered. Drink now or age for a further five years to catch this at its best." Tasted 10/7/15
Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass
For richer, oaked Sauvignon Blancs such as The Fuder, white Graves or Semillon/Sauvignon blends. For young and non-vintage Champagne we recommend Zalto Universal. However, the Zalto Universal is a very good all-rounder, designed for all types of wines but may not maximize the potential of certain wine as much as the Bordeaux or Burgundy glass.
The Champagne region is one of the country’s most important wine regions and has been producing champagne for over 1000 years. South of Reims, Épernay is the capital and main trading ground for the area. French wine laws state that only sparkling wines from this region can be labelled as Champagne and they must adhere to strict appellation standards.
