Marks & Spencer adds Lanson Black Label to range

Marks & Spencer has added Champagne Lanson’s Black label to its sparkling wine range, it has been announced.

The Black Label Champagne will be on the shelves of 550 Marks & Spencer branches nationwide from Wednesday 3 October, at £32 a bottle.

Emma Dawson MW, Marks & Spencer wine buyer, said: “We are delighted to have Champagne Lanson’s Black Label Brut NV added to our growing Champagne range.

“We know that our customers will welcome an opportunity to enjoy this exceptional Champagne just as they currently do with Lanson’s premium Extra Age.”

Champagne Lanson Black Label is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier made from 100 Crus. It is made using the traditional method which gives a “fresh, fruity and elegant style”, according to the brand, and is aged for a minimum of three and a half years, compared to the legally required 15 months. 

Established in 1760, the House of Lanson is one of the oldest family-run houses, and has been a Royal Warrant holder since 1901. 

Lansons flagship Champagne is still poured in the Royal Household to this day. Champagne Lanson Black Label was also first poured in 1977 at the Championships, Wimbledon, and is still served 41 years later.

Paul Beavis, managing director, Champagne Lanson, UK & International adds: We are absolutely thrilled about Marks & Spencers decision to add Lanson Black Label to their impressive range of Champagnes.

“Our Extra Age remains an important listing for us and to know that our universally appreciated Lanson Black Label will be added to the range is fabulous news. We hope that this addition will continue to develop into a long-lasting relationship with Marks & Spencer.”
