87 Points Robert Parker
The youngest release of the NV Black Label Brut is based on 2011 (75%) and 25% reserve wines from many vintages. Disgorged in October 2015, the Black Label displays ripe white and lemony fruit flavors on the fresh and nutty nose. Round, elegant, lean and fresh on the palate, but still a bit austere in the grippy finish, it should be aged for several years to soften its acidic style, which will show much better with maturity. This should be excellent with oysters and raw fish.

Lanson is singularly responsible for delivering high-strung, age-worthy champagne to the masses, thanks to perpetual discounting ($40 at Kemeny’s and Dan’s). No malo makes for a cut of fresh, zesty lemon fruit, while reserve components build toasty, roast nut complexity. The real thing at a refreshing price.
