Wine Maker Notes
In 2009, to celebrate its 250th anniversary, The House of Lanson launched its new cuvée Lanson Extra Age. In the traditional House style of the 19th and early 20th century, Lanson Extra Age avoids malolactic fermentation, enabling the fresh, fruity aromas to develop gracefully, giving it an outstanding aging capability. To complete the Extra Age range, and build upon the expertise of the House in champagne rosé, Lanson launched their Extra Age Rosé cuvée in June 2011. Combining the outstanding characteristics of vintages from 2002, 2004 and 2005, Extra Age Rosé marries complexity and freshness to create a truly exceptional champagne.
Blend: 35% Chardonnay, 65% Pinot Noir
Combining the signature freshness and fruitiness, the taste on the palate reveals deliciously sour notes of wild strawberry, redcurrants and red-fleshed peaches. The Lanson Extra Age Rosé would make an ideal accompaniment for lamb and deserts made with fresh red fruits.
