Lanson Rose Label Brut Rosé

There is a dazzling elegance and an understated delicacy to this gorgeous rosé that its blatant strawberry-mousse coloured livery completely belies. Don’t be put off by this or its teeny price, because this is a beautifully crafted rosé of purity and subtlety. Jean-Paul Gandon seeks red wine of pretty aromatics and soft tannins and uses a judicious dose to create a medium salmon hue. Red cherry, red apple, strawberry hull and rose petal perfume all congregate and hang around for a surprisingly long finish, sustained by the delightful tang of malic acidity and softly mineral texture. One of the true bargains of rosé champagne. Coming to Dan Murphy’s by mid-October.
