~~Lanson Extra Age (X.A) Rosé is the result of over fifty years' pioneering expertise in the creation of rosé champagne. This delicate, fresh blend combines Chardonnay (35%) and Pinot Noir (65%) from selected "grand cru"” vineyards (Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Verzenay, Bouzy) and a marriage of three great Lanson vintages: 2002, 2004 and 2005.
Blended and then aged at least five years in our cellars, Extra Age Rosé is a generous, rich, full-bodied wine with an elegant copper colour enlivened by a myriad of fine bubbles that release olfactory notes of ripe red fruit and sweets dominated by fragrances of home-made strawberry jam. On the palate, acid flavours recalling wild strawberries, redcurrants and vine peach give way to a persistent finish combining freshness and delicacy.
Blend: 35% Chardonnay, 65% Pinot Noir.
