"A racy streak of tangy mineral underscores the flavors of pink grapefruit granita and slivered almond in this vibrant version, with hints of toast and orchard blossom. Well-knit and elegant, with a lasting, spiced finish. Disgorged July 2016. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases imported. -AN " (WS)

"Sliced strawberries with hints of lemon and orange peel. Some earth. Full-bodied, round and fruity with apples and hints of fruit. Delicious and fruit-forward. Nice creamy texture." (JS)

"The beautifully judged pale-orange-pink color of this delicious wine is a sign of the balance in the glass. It is crisp and towards the dry end of Brut, typical of the Lanson style. There is fine acidity and a crisp texture from the Chardonnay in the blend. Hints of red fruits come through along with a touch of tannin. The wine is ready to drink." (WE)

"There's a dark, umami richness to this wine, bringing to mind sauteed wild mushrooms and veal stock. There's also a flinty edge wiring it tight. Vinous and dry, this is built for rillettes." (Wine & Spirits)

Winery Notes:
Lanson Rose Label is a blend of 53% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier, from a number of crus and almost ten different years. Like Black Label, it is enhanced through a long maturation of at least three years in the cellar, including at least 6 months after disgorging.

Lanson Rose Label is a subtle wine with very fine bubbles. Its aromas of rose and fine fragrances of red fruits echo its pale pink colour. The sensation is tender and long-lasting. It seduces with its unfaltering originality and a harmonious balance alternating between roundness and freshness.
