An interesting read! Lanson does quite well in the rankings. Their Gold Label is actually a nice drop, and very competitively priced (good value).
Worth keeping an eye on BWS clearances, one of the stores in my area has had this on clearance for 3 months - not sure on the vintage.

There hasn’t been a 25% off for a few months.

don't forget Tyson's guide - Lanson Gold Label is good, but Extra Age is better in both quality/complexity and value - only a few clearance dollars more :)


How many of the Lanson did they have on offer Steady?
BWS clearance wines and prices are store specific and vary between them

Triple wine club points (equivalent to 15% off) from 13 May at Vintage Cellars on Perrier Jouet Grand Brut. Would stack with the Amex Vintage Cellars Online 200/20 statement credit

Hmmm...interesting lists there. Not sure how thorough it is given Krug NV couldn't make it into the top 10 of their "TOP 10 Non-Vintage Blend Champagnes in 2020" list.
