Champagne Lanson toasts National Organic Week

Champagne Lanson toasts National Organic Week

Champagne Lanson is toasting National Organic Week with its first organic Champagne: Lanson Green Label.

National Organic Week is celebrated in Australia from September 8-16. It's a chance to make ourselves aware of environmental issues and open our mind to new ways of consuming.

Many events have been taking place around the country, focussing on organic culture and organic food. While we often speak about the growing popularity of organic fruit, vegetables and meat, organic Champagne sales are also booming.

Champagne Lanson chose to launch its first organic Champagne in response to the issues the industry will face in the coming years and decades.

The House of Lanson has already begun its investment in the organic viticulture through its 16 hectares of single vineyard with three grape varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, the result is the House’s newest cuvée, Lanson Green Label Brut Organic.

Lanson Green Label champagne is produced using organic grapes grown exclusively on an estate vineyard at the village of Verneuil, located in the Champagne appelation. Committed to organic and biodynamic cultivation for many years, the vineyard is dedicated to protecting the ecosystem and respects the balance between soil, plants and humans.

It is part of the House of Lanson’s overall approach to respecting the environment and follows a strict ecological logic whereby the bottles are lightweight and the labels are made of recycled paper. Inspired by nature, Lanson has chosen to combine the colour green with its distinctive emblem, the Lanson Cross. 

And how does it taste? The nose expresses intense notes of pear, peach and blackcurrant, accompanied by a touch of citrus and oriental spices. Ripe fruit flavours such as pear, mirabelle plum and mango linger on the palate, melting away in a wine with deep vitality and minerality. 

Ideal as an organic aperitif, it can also accompany more elaborate fish or grilled meat dishes. 

The Green Label wines have been accredited with the labels agriculture biologique in France, BIOSUISSE in Switzerland and Demeter (independent label). These labels are renowned for being among the strictest in Europe.
