Notes from the Winemaker:
Rich yellow gold, with fine lively bubbles. The nose is intense with notes of citrus, peach and blackcurrant, a touch of spice, and all underlined by a mineral soul. Ripe flavours abound on the creamy but delicate palate, pear, plum and a dash of tropical fruit. This finish is long, fresh and impressive, gently framed by spices and exotic fruits. Wow, driven by its mineral purity, Lanson Green Label Champagne expresses the quality & uniqueness of its terroir

Ratings & Reviews



91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Lanson's NV Green Label Brut is the house's first organically—even biodynamically—farmed Champagne and is certified by several European labels, including Ecocert and Agriculture Biologique (AB). The blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Meunier is exclusively sourced from an estate vineyard at Verneuil, in the heart of the Marne Valley. The intensely straw-yellow colored wine shows a nicely clear, fresh and aromatic yet delicate bouquet with flowery, brioche and some nutty aromas of ripe white fruits such as pears and apples along with some lemon notes. The palate is lean, light but intense, dry, fresh and elegant and is provided with ripe, well-textured fruit, good structure and stimulating citrus flavors in the persistent finish. This is a characterful new entry into the Lanson portfolio and indeed more than just greenwashing. It's great as an aperitif and with white fish. Aged for three years, it was disgorged in October 2017 with a dosage of eight grams." -Stephan Reinhardt (Jun 2018)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Well-cut and smoky, this savory Champagne layers a minerally overtone with notes of fresh-cut apple, grapefruit sorbet and spring blossom. Vivid acidity firms the finish. Disgorged March 2018. Drink now through 2020. 4,000 cases made." -AN (Nov 2018)
