For me, champagnes are like little black dresses - I have my favorites but I'm always willing to try something new. Recently, I was introduced to Champagne Lanson White Label and this refreshing and elegant bubbly is a great summer sip. A new addition to the Champagne Lanson portfolio, their White Label is the first champagne specifically designed to pair with and enhance the aromas of fresh natural flavors such as raspberries, mint, and orange peel. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the fermentation process of the Champagne Lanson White Label preserves the original aromas of the grapes to create a perfect environment for the addition of fresh flavors.
Serve Champagne Lanson White Label well-chilled in a large wine glass, not a flute, so that the aromas have room to circulate. Add your favorite natural ingredient, swirl the glass so that the aromas are released, and enjoy! I tasted Champagne Lanson White Label with a sprig of mint and found the combination crisp and flavorful - the zestiness of the mint paired beautifully with the wine.
If you are not familiar with Champagne Lanson, the house was founded in 1760 and cellar ages their bubblies for 3 years, more than double the required minimum. Champagne Lanson is the official supplier of Champagne at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships - what a delicious way to celebrate a victory and soothe a defeat!
Champagne Lanson White Label retails for $59.99 per bottle and $124.99 for a magnum.
