Hints of spring flowers with a touch of toast and honey. This is followed by strong fruit and balancing citrus flavours.

If there is one Non-Vintage Brut Champagne that is universally appreciated, it is surely Lanson Black Label, a great classic with a fresh and elegant style.

With a history dating back to 1760 Champagne Lanson is the third oldest house in Champagne and was awarded the Royal Warrant in 1860 by Queen Victoria. Champagne is an historic province in the northeast of France, best known for the production of the sparkling white wine that bears the region's name. Lanson are of the few producers to prevent malolactic fermentation, keeping their wines crisp and refreshing. The wine then has extended ageing in the historical wine cellars to mature and soften.

ABV: 12.5.

Units per 125ml: 1.6.

Nice stuff, far better than that moet rubbish

this is one of my favorite champagnes, even though its dry, when it is ice cold it is sooo bloody good!

HEAT!

Agree with the above comments, a lovely champers although obviously this is a personal preference. Ill be stocking up for special occasions i think

Worth getting in at this price - never know when you might need it!

Champagne is so pretentious when you can get much better sparkling wines from the new world for a fiver. Keep giving away your money dudes thinking others care, its just fizzy wine from a snobs soda stream

Whilst a five quid bottle of fizzy stuff from the new world is very nice it doesn't come close to this. In fact the only sparkler I think does give real champagne a run for its money is British.

Anyway Lanson is good, reliable shampoo for fifteen notes. Hot deal :-)

With all due respect I think I would sooner take advice from Oz Clarke

en.wikipedia.org/wik…rke

Clarke stated in Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure that he was banned from the Champagne region of France in the 1990s for having made statements suggesting that champagne was deteriorating in value while rising in price

He also went on to celebrate new world sparkling wines

Champagne is far, far superior to almost all Cava and other sparkling wines, which are often produced by basically injecting carbon dioxide into still wine rather than allowing the second fermentation in the bottle. Some people will say "ah but you can get sparkling wines for a fiver that are much better" but they don't really know what they're on about - it's just one of those things that people say to try to sound clever.

I agree that champagne prices have risen beyond what they should be though, certainly since the millennium - most of the grand marques are rather bland considering their full retail price, but I tend to stick to the grower-producers (RMs) now, as you get better quality than the mass produced champagnes for a lower price.

Even though I don't really rate Lanson, it's still way ahead of a bottle of £5 sparkling wine.

Do you not think then that possibly he is just a little bitter and would say anything to have a little dig at the champagne region? As i said above its personal preference. Some of my favourite reds are cheap, my beer i like to spend more and get a decent drink. If what you like is the cheapest on the market then big thumbs up i say

Anyone that drinks champagne because it "looks cool" or "its expensive" are the ones who are being a little stupid but each to their own.

Cracking deal many thanks. C'mon guys if you dont like, wont pay the price or prefer labrini then fair enough. The 'Deal' is half price! if you do like. Just a quick one after galloping up to Sainsburys for the deal they mention that only three per customer. We'll I bought six and got another 5% discount. Six Bottles for £84.01.

****! i stopped at 3 because id seen that on here as the limit. Probably best for the wallet anyway

Would you care to share with the rest of us what this bottle of fizz (for a fiver) that Oz Clarke rates above champagne actually is then?

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with your main point, but I would point out that Cava is made with the traditional method (the same as Champagne). Other sparking wines like Prosecco can be made using cheaper methods, but AFAIK any sparkling wine produced in the EU by injecting CO2 would have to be labelled "aerated sparkling wine".

Also, most people make the point that a good quality non-Champagne sparkling wine can be better than a low-end Champagne, not that a £5 sparkler is better than a major Champagne house.

Excellent!

a post above said 6 bottles was only £84 anyway, a £15 voucher should have been £69?

Looks like they've removed it from the site. It's definitely still instore & on offer.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Got 30 bottles today, the shelf ticket said maximum 3 per customer so I initially got 6 (3 mine, 3 the mrs) but the lady at the till said she hadnt been told any limits and it wasnt warning her on the till so I went straight back in for 24 bottles more.

Even better that you get 5% discount when buying 6 or more so it worked out at £14 per bottle... result!

Fantastic champagne. Might pop down to stock up some.

If you like your sparkly, I can recommend both white and rose versions of Marques Monistrol for a cheaper way to enjoy yourself. Currently a fiver in Asda.
