Just opposite Notre Dame de Reims Cathedral lies a unique plot of one hectare surrounded by tall protective walls, that dates back to the 18th century: Clos Lanson.
Situated on top of the hill where the House of Lanson and its wine cellars are also located, Clos Lanson benefits from a distinctive microclimate and particularly chalky soil.
The vineyard is treated just like a family garden due to its small size and the special care and attention that it has always received.
The vines of Clos Lanson have always been a favourite of the House’s owners and are visited daily by the Wine-Maker. In order to carry on the Lanson family spirit, every year the men and women of the house help harvest this precious plot, selecting only flawless, quality grape bunches for the production of Clos Lanson Champagne.
Wines from Clos Lanson have rare, unique characteristics that have always appealed to Lanson Wine-Makers. In 2006, the decision was made to offer connoisseurs the eponymous Cuvée from this promising vintage. Clos Lanson is a vintage Champagne whose juice, which comes exclusively from the first pressing, is vinified for several months in oak barrels.
After lengthy ageing in cellars, a precious wine is obtained: radiant, rich and extremely elegant. In 2016, Hervé Dantan decided to release the 7,870 bottles of Clos Lanson 2006.
The Quintessential Lanson Style
Produced from a careful selection of grapes from Grand Crus only, Noble Cuvée is the very essence of the Lanson Style.
The Noble Cuvée embodies all the excellence of this renowned Champagne House. The fruity, grape flavour and freshness so characteristic of this style are admirably conveyed and enhanced by the extreme delicacy of the Chardonnay grape, wich is one of the major components of the blends for this Grande Cuvée.
Brut Vintage 2000
Embodying the very essence of the Lanson Style, the Noble Cuvée Brut Vintage offers a marvellous snapshot of Lanson’s excellence concentrated in a single vintage. A pure and stylish Champagne featuring a remarkably rounded taste on the palate, it is a complex and intense champagne and a wonderful ambassador for the inimitable Lanson Style.
Blanc de Blancs 2000
The Noble Cuvée Blanc de Blancs Brut Vintage 2000 develops aromas of yellow flowers an pear, set off by a mineral touch. On the palate, the slightly honeyed flavours are persistent and the clear-cut finish emphasises the nobility of this remarkable wine.
The Noble Cuvée Rosé invites you to discover its secrets, revealing a light, bright colour. Its fragrance of old roses gradually gives way to slight citrus flavours on the palate, further prolonging the enjoyment of the wine.
