Item#: 74724

SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2021
Racy acidity is tightly meshed to flavors of ripe red and black currant, preserved lemon, chopped almond and honeycomb in this sleek Champagne, with a fine, chalky bead. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Disgorged September 2020. Drink now through 2024. 11,900 cases imported.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
Disgorged in January 2018, the latest release of Lanson’s NV Brut Black Label is showing well, offering up aromas of warm biscuits, crisp orchard fruit, dried citrus rind and toasted brioche. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied and crisp but fleshy, with the house’s non-malo style tempered by a generous core of fruit, concluding with a long, chalky finish. This is a very creditable non-vintage cuvée that has the cut and structure to evolve in the cellar.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2015
Light gold. Aromas of nectarine, pear and lemon curd, with subtle ginger, lees and floral accents. Sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and pick up spiciness and a chalky nuance with air. Powerful yet lithe and focused, finishing with very good clarity and length and lingering spiciness.

Where It's From

Region / Champagne

View more wines from Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Mouthwatering acidity drives this sleek rosé Champagne, with juicy star fruit and raspberry flavors riding the lively mousse, accented by hints of pastry, orange peel, smoke and dried herb. Drink now.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2015
Dark, vivid pink. Ripe red berries, rose oil and tangerine on the nose, plus a subtle note of toasty lees. Bitter cherry and berry skin flavors give way to softer raspberry in the middle, with a tangy blood orange nuance adding cut and lift. Packs a punch but shows very good clarity and delineation, finishing round, smooth and quite long.
ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2006
Pale pink. Delicate, racy aromas of flowers and spicy red berries. Focused, even tight, with tart red fruit flavors enlivened by tangy acidity. This is one of the driest versions of this wine I can recall. Finishes brisk and clean, with a lingering impression of white peach.
WE8787 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2004
Rather fruity, with scents of cherries and peaches that come together in a round, easy-to-drink style. A little simple, perhaps, but this is a clean, fresh sparkler that won’t disappoint.

Attractively fruity nose of pomegranate, strawberries, pastries and grapefruit. It’s medium-bodied with fine bubbles. Dry feel on a biscuity finish. Chardonnay, pinot noir and meunier. Drink now. (James Suckling)

This bright and stylish Champagne is tightly knit and satiny in texture, with hints of smoke and pastry cream underscoring the apricot, lemon curd and pickled ginger flavors. Ends with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Jun 2016
Based on 2012 and 45% reserve wines of 2011 and a bit of 2010, the white-golden colored NV Brut Classic is very clear and elegant on the nose; it offers bright fruit aromas and fresh lemon flavors, along with herbal aromas. Light, pure and finesse-full on the palate, this is a pretty mineral and refreshing cuvée with good substance in the finish. A delicious aperitif.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2017
This nonvintage classic is on point with its soft, ripe style. It has just enough maturity to fill out the fruit, with hints of almond and toast. On the palate, attractive bright citrus and green apple flavors dominate.
ST9090 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2012
Light yellow. Toasty lees, poached pear and lemon rind on the pungent nose. Offers an array of sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and becomes spicier with air. The lemon and lees notes come back on the broad, clear finish.
JS8989 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, October 7, 2016
An assertive citrus and peach-stone fruit style that has plenty of bread-dough and yeasty influence on the nose and palate. The acidity is piercing, and some red fruit flavors and smooth tannins show themselves to close things out. Drink now.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 31, 2010
Broad and toasty with baked fruit flavors of orange and lime, this is a simple, polished Champagne to serve with creamy dishes, like blanquette de veau. Best Buy.

A harmonious Champagne, with well-knit, mouthwatering acidity, offering hints of bread dough and spun honey that enrich flavors of black cherry, salted almond and preserved lemon. Not a powerhouse, but this shows good focus while remaining fine and creamy in texture. The minerally finish shows hints of smoke and oyster shell. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
An elegant version, fine and creamy in texture and backed by lively, orange peel acidity. A streak of smoke-tinged minerality underscores flavors of almond madeleine, poached pear, anise and preserved lemon. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 31, 2023
This is showing aromas of apricots, grapefruit, pears and short crust. Some walnuts, too. Medium-bodied, with soft bubbles and tasty nut and pie crust notes at the end. Blend of pinot noir, meunier and chardonnay. 24 months on the lees. Tasted from a magnum bottle. Drink now. (James Suckling)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
Bright and balanced, featuring a fine, lively bead, mouthwatering acidity and a lightly toasty profile of poached pear and black currant flavors, with rich hints of lemon curd and pastry cream. Drink now through 2020. (Alison Napjus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2012
Tart red-fruit scents give this a vinous profile, fragrant with cranberry, root vegetables and ginger. It finishes clean, with cool limestone minerality. Cellar this for a year to let the flavors develop further.
WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2018
Well balanced, this Champagne, even with its enormous production, remains a benchmark and is always enjoyable. In this bottling, ripe white fruit is cut with citrus, with an edge of toastiness that gives complexity. Drink now.
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Mar 2021
Based on the challenging 2017 vintage, the current release of Moët & Chandon’s NV Brut Imperial was disgorged with seven grams dosage (representing a reduction of around 50% in the last 20 years) and contains an unusually high proportion of reserve wines. Offering up aromas of pear, peach and citrus oil mingled with hints of fresh bread and white flowers, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and pillowy, with racy acids and an enveloping core of fruit, complemented by a pinpoint mousse and concluding with a nicely defined finish. Impressively seamless, it’s a fine rendition of one of Champagne’s largest bottlings. (William Kelley)
