Extra Age Blanc de Blancs
About this winery
The House of Lanson was founded in 1760 by François Delamotte, an influential character in Reims society. The joint owner, alongside his wife, of a not-insubstantial vineyard in Cumières and Ay, he decided to found his own Champagne house – one of the very first ever to exist. In 1798, Nicolas-Louis Delamotte, his younger son, took over from his father. Having been admitted as a knight of the Order of Malta at a very young age, he decided to use the Maltese Cross as the House’s emblem....
This Champagne is a blend of the three great vintages : 2003, 2004, and 2005, from Chardonnay wines harvested on Grands Crus and Premier Crus plots exclusively : Avize, Cramant, Oiry, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The ageing process in cellar discloses very fresh aromas of white flowers like hawthorn and linden. The taste is very aerial and fresh in perfect harmony with fragrances of white flowers.
Appearance: Clear, pale golden. Aroma: Meringue and pear with white petal floral notes and delicate lemon zest. Taste: Good acidity and fresness with grassy salt/brine, buttery chardonnay and chalky minerality. Aftertaste: Good minerality and citrus freshness with lingering fruit.
