The Art of blending and ageing Grands Millésimes
For its 250th anniversary the House of Lanson created an emblematic cuvée to “showcase” its style, emulating the traditionally complex and fresh style maintained by classic Lanson champagnes since 1760.
Extra Age is a blend of special vintage years bringing together the best Champagne Crus. Traditional vinification methods enable the original purity of the fruit to be maintained and bring great freshness. Ageing and slow maturation on the lees enable Lanson Extra Age to fully express the character and richness of its aromas.
Extra age brut
In order to continue a style that marries complexity with freshness, Lanson Extra Age Brut unites the exceptional characters of the grand millésime years of 2000, 2002 and 2004.
The harmony and balance, for which these years were chosen, enable the full expression of the power of the Pinot Noir picked from the best plots of Verzenay and Bouzy. The Chardonnays from the Côte des Blancs, Chouilly, Avize, Oger and Vertus, in all their diversity, add a touch of finesse.
Extra age rosé
For Extra Age Brut Rosé, the 2002, 2004 and 2005 vintages and Crus were carefully selected for their ability to create a perfect symbiosis.
The generous and fruity expression of the Pinot Noirs from Bouzy is tempered by the delicacy and extreme finesse of the Chardonnays from the Côte des Blancs, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Oger and Mesnil-sur-Oger.
Extra Age Blanc de Blancs
To create Extra Age Blanc de Blancs, the House selected Chardonnays from Avize, Cramant, Oiry, Oger and Mesnil-sur-Orge and blended vintages from 2003, 2004 and 2005.
Aged for at least 5 years in our Cellars, this Blanc de Blancs is a harmonious, rich and delicate wine with extreme finesse.
