Wine Maker Notes
To mark its 250th anniversary, Lanson opted to innovate while remaining true to its tradition and know-how by releasing a special cuvée 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
The aromatic palette of this exceptional champagne will delight you with its intensity and complexity. On the palate, Extra Age has a strong backbone and can therefore be served with rich flavourful dishes: scallops and truffles, spicy Lobster Gratin and Roast Partridge or Pheasant.
