Tasted today at Pavillon Ledoyen’s hosted Patisserie and Champagne Salon (Paris) was Lanson’s just-about-to-be-released organic and Demeter certified champagne.
Notes of citrus, yellow fruits, fresh and mineral, this champagne has been aged 3 years and is the product of former Leclerc Briant held vineyards which were some of the very first in Champagne to dare organic and bio-dynamic viticultural practices. Purchased in 2010 by the house of Lanson, their acquired 16 hectares now make up much of what is being released as Lanson’s Green Label: Ecocert, Demeter, monocru, monoparcelle and certified by the Interprofessionel designation of Viticulture Durable en Champagne (VDC).
The champagne has fine bubbles and after its note of citrus, finishes on a slight bit of spicy. It has only 8g. of sugar. And its label is made from recycled paper. It officially comes from the Maison à Verneuil.
The official release date in France (it has been on the export market since 2017) is for September. That means that maybe for next year’s Wimbledon matches, the tennis fans and Meghan will get to drink organic and bio-dynamic Lanson chamapagne!
