Lanson Le Black Creation replaces the Lanson Black label Burt New for 2023 onwards.
"Recreating the finest expression of the Lanson style with each harvest is a duty of memory and a challenge that requires creativity and humility towards nature. Each Création is unique and writes a new page in our stor y, one that we share with the utmost transparency." - Hervé Dantan Winemaker at Maison Lanson
LE BLACK CRÉATION 257
The Création 257 is the fruit of a blend based on the 2017 harvest, a year marked by the variety of climate events. This unusual weather led to early harvests and a great diversity throughout the region, emphasising the importance of the single-parcel approach taken by the House.
Le Black Création 257 blend is dominated by Pinots Noirs, some from the Montagne de Reims with their distinctive character, perfectly blended with the delectable, fruity flavour of others from the Aube. The Chardonnays–the runaway success of the 2017 harvest–show a remarkable elegance and freshness, while the Pinots Meuniers from the Vallée de la Marne boast generosity and suppleness.
Each Création has a unique recipe that is revealed through the QR code displayed on each back label. This new tool allows all connoisseurs to discover the secrets behind their Création, and marks a new chapter in the desire for transparency.
EYE - Amber shimmers are reflected in a gleaming colour with a fine stream of bubbles.
NOSE - A bouquet of tangy fruit among which aromas of William pear, apple and citrus are precisely identifiable. After a few minutes, aromas of freshly-baked pastries appear.
PALATE - Generous with flavours of ripe orchard fruit, notes of mandarin, lemon and grapefruit that burst on the palate, providing a sensation of freshness. Maturity is expressed through notes of brioche and dried fruit.
2017 is a perfect illustration of the uniqueness of each harvest. After a winter and spring marked by record high temperatures came the shock of intense frost from 16 to 21 April, which damaged the vines. This was followed by a warm and sunny summer that ended in torrential downpours and hailstorms, causing mould to develop quickly.

THE BLACK CRÉATION SPIRIT
Combining a sense of heritage with expertise, Lanson Winemakers have perpetuated for over 260 years a characterful, fresh and elegant style, with the multi vintage brut as its signature. Renamed Le Black Label by Victor Lanson in 1937, as a sign of its openness to the world and in tribute to the Royal Court of England, this iconic cuvée took a first step in the history of the House. When he joined as Winemaker in 2013, Hervé Dantan set about enriching this heritage. By adapting to the uniqueness of each harvest, he took the precision of there blends even further. Driven by this creative mission, he redesigned the production facility, reshaped the expertise and worked to develop cultural practices.
Hervé Dantan redefines Le Black Label with Le Black Création, a name that illustrates the tailored work demanded by the exceptional character of each harvest. Each Création comes with a number in reference to the number of harvests that have taken place since the House was founded in 1760. More than ever, it places expertise, transparency and authenticity at the heart of our approach. Each Création is unique and enhances the previous one.
