      • "is too expensive by comparison in the UK"

      I've tried Lanson Ivory Label Champagne, purchased in France but I've seen it in Wine Merchants over here. It is a pale yellow Champagne with medium sized bubbles (yes bubble size is important for quality; smaller is better). It has a medium dry taste which is not bitter and a mild fruity taste on the pallette. It is not acidic and has no vinegar-type taste as found in some other champagnes. Served with Fish and Chips it is delicious (totally decadent). It also goes well with Belgian chocolates. It costs about £9.00 in Sainsbury's in Calais which is tax paid but it may cost up to twice that amount in the UK because of our tax system. After drinking a bottle at a wedding, I did not suffer any hangover or foggy head the next day so there must be very few impurities in the champagne. It seems to keep well for up to a year if rested on its side, but if you can resist it, it may keep longer. Generally, champagne is not stored for long periods like some collectable wines. A very nice, smooth drink when served well-chilled to be savoured either on the patio, or while soaking in a generously bubbly bath !

      "Lanson was founded in 1760 by François Delamotte, who was a magistrate in Reims, and today it is one of the oldest Champagne Houses. Nicolas-Louis Delamotte, his son and a Knight of the Order of Malta, took over in 1798 and used the Malta Cross as the House’s crest. In 1828, Nicolas-Louis Delamotte formed a partnership with Jean-Baptiste Lanson who, having signed a deed with the wife of the late Nicolas-Louis Delamotte in 1837, gave the company the name of Lanson et Cie.
