Blog: Olly WehringEverything you always wanted to know about Champagne...

Olly Wehring | 2 February 2010

If, like us, you're based in the UK and, like us, you prefer your peers to believe that you know more than you actually do, then this little black book might come in handy.

Champagne Lanson is celebrating its 250th anniversary in the UK this year by offering a pocket guide to all things champenoise, ‘The Little Black Book of Champagne’.

The 52-page book offers a guide to the different taste profiles of malolactic and non-malolactic styles of Champagne and helps to put into context the role that taste should play when choosing Champagne.

Retailing at GBP5.99, the guide will be available free of charge to trade and consumers for a limited period by requesting a copy from here.

We've already put our order in.
