Emblematic of the Lanson style, Extra Age (X.A) Brut is a blend of Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir (60%) from selected “grand cru” and “premier cru” vineyards (Avize, Chouilly, Oger, Vertus, Verzenay, Bouzy) and a marriage of three exceptional Lanson vintages: 2000, 2002 and 2004.
Blended and matured in Maison Lanson's historic cellars, this extraordinary blend has waited more than five years to achieve its ultimate expression
To the eye, Extra Age Brut is a vibrant straw yellow with fine bubbles. The first clues, notes of yellow fruit and dried fruit, combine quickly with fragrances of honey, biscuit and sweet spices, developing a powerful and complex aromatic palette.
The mouth is seduced by the meaty attack and the full, rich body with a focus on the fruit. The clear finish ends with the characteristic freshness of Maison Lanson's style.
The intense aromatic palette of Extra Age Brut will marry perfectly with rich, flavourful dishes such as scallops with truffles, spiced lobster gratin, roast capon or thrush with sage.
Chardonnay: 40%, Pinot Noir: 60%. The blend of wines is made from the crus or villages of Chouilly, Avize, Oger, Vertus, Verzenay and Bouzy.
Extra Age is aged for a minimum of 5 years.
To revive the tradition of Lanson Champagnes of the 19th and early 20th centuries, Extra Age is a blend of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs selected only from Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards. In order to maintain a style that combines both complexity and freshness, Lanson combines the outstanding characters of several vintages: 2000, 2002 and 2004.
