Wine Notes: Emblematic of the Lanson style, Extra Age Brut is a blend of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir from selected grand cru and premier cru vineyards (Avize, Chouilly, Oger, Vertus, Verzenay, Bouzy) and a marriage of three exceptional Lanson vintages: 2000, 2002 and 2004. Blended and matured in Maison Lanson's historic cellars, this extraordinary Champagne has waited more than five years to achieve its ultimate expression.
Tasting Notes: Extra Age Brut has a vibrant straw yellow color with fine bubbles. The first clues, notes of yellow fruit and dried fruit, combine quickly with fragrances of honey, biscuit and sweet spices, developing a powerful and complex aromatic palate. The mouth is seduced by the meaty attack and the full, rich body with a focus on the fruit. The finish ends with the characteristic freshness of Maison Lanson's style. Extra Age Brut will pair perfectly with rich, flavorful dishes such as scallops with truffles or spiced lobster gratin.
