As Valentine’s Day gets closer, it’s all about Champagne and love. It’s the time of the year you want to find the perfect bottle of Champagne and share it with that someone special. If you are like me, you do it around the fireplace with a nice home-cooked meal, soft music playing. There is no bottle of Champagne that says it better than Lanson 1760 Le Rose.

Maison Lanson is one of the oldest Champagne Houses founded in 1760. The cross you see on the bottle dates back to 1798 when the founder’s son decided to use the Maltese Cross to distinguish their wines from everyone else. Not everyone can use the Maltese Cross. The origin dates back to the Crusades and the Knights Hospitaller and he was a member of the Hospitaller’s Order of Malta. This Cross represents a person who is willing to defend others and their community at no cost. He had a love for his people and community.

Lanson believes in love not only for their community but love for the soil, the terroir. They believe that happiness should be shared and what better way to share in happiness and love, but with a bottle of their “Le Rose.”

This Valentine’s Day, it’s not about the fancy restaurant you’re dining at for this once-a-year event, it’s about the person or people you are with. You can be in your dining room, outside around your fire pit, sitting on the couch watching Netflix. Remember it’s about feeling the love, the love you have for each other, the bond that brings you together. Sharing this love with Lanson just elevates the entire evening.

From the time you pop that cork, Lanson 1760 Le Rose will heat up the evening. That first sip will have you looking at your loved one, smiling as the warm tingling feeling travels throughout your body. Made with 53% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier, it has a beautiful salmon color and elegant fine bubble. Aromas of soft strawberry, hint of baking bread and mandarin orange. Just smelling what is escaping from the glass will have you looking at each other with romance in your eyes. Once you take that first sip, you know it’s a perfect evening. Crisp, clean and elegant with red fruit, just ripened strawberry, nice acidity will have you flirting for more.

Lanson 1760 Le Rose is available at most liquor stores and retails for $69.99.
