To mark its 250th anniversary, Lanson opted to innovate while remaining true to its tradition and know-how by releasing a special cuvee to commemorate this milestone. Extra Age is a multi-vintage blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir selected only from Grands Cru and Premier Cru vineyards. To maintain a style that has combined both complexity and freshness since 1760, Extra Age marries the outstanding characters of several great vintages: 1999, 2002 and 2003. Extra Age pays homage to the rich history of the House while setting a bold statement for the future direction of Champagne Lanson.
Blend: 40% Chardonnay, 60% Pinot Noir.
•To the eye: Extra Age is a vibrant straw yellow colour with fine bubbles
•On the nose: Aromas of fig, winter pear and honey, combined with bready notes reminiscent of french pastries
•On the palate: Full bodied and complex with a finale of finesse and freshness
