Lanson Gold Label Brut Vintage

If you thought you couldn’t afford truly great vintage champagne, this is your wine. I have waited in eager anticipation for seven months for Lanson 2002 to land in Australia, and oh the rejoicing when it hit my local Dan Murphy’s last week! The most profound Lanson since 1996 carries a formidable tension between energetic vitality and sheer concentration. At an insane $60 at Dan’s right now, this is the bargain buy of the year in big house vintage champagne.
