Whilst Champagne on New Year’s Eve is all about theatrical displays of popping bottles, the occasion to enjoy a glass alongside some delicious canapés should not be missed.
Experience the power of Champagne as its high acidity cuts through almost any delectable treat.
Champagne Lanson has a reason to celebrate this year, as 2023 sees it unveil the 257th blend of the famously crafted Le Black Création. The latest multi-vintage blend is the perfect companion for a multitude of festive nourishment.
Here’s what Le Black Création pairs best with those all-important New Year’s Eve canapés:
Porcini Mushroom Arancini – perfect for winter weather, enjoy this classic seasonal vegetable paired with the fresh and elegant style unique to Lanson Champagne.
Parmesan Polenta Bites – combine the salty nutty richness of parmesan with the lightness of bubbles to sublimate this blend. The crisp and tangy fruit aromas of William pear, apple and citrus expressed in Le Black Création perfectly compliment – a feast for the senses!
Dark Chocolate Truffles – Be surprised by the aromatic richness of this seemingly daring combination. The bubbles of the Champagne, combined with the maturity expressed by notes of brioche and dried fruit, harmonise with the toasted nuts in the chocolate.
Each bottle of Le Black Création is aged for more than four years in the cellars, retaining the vitality and aromatic richness that Lanson Champagne is known for.
Grapes are meticulously selected from over 100 of the finest Crus of Champagne, including 50% of Grand and Premier crus in historical cornerstones such as Dizy, Verzenay and Trépail.
Champagne Lanson’s Le Black Création is available now from Sainsbury’s – online and in stores nationwide. RRP £41.00.
