A new bottle! How exciting.
Lanson Champagne has launched a new ‘Extra Age’ to their line to compliment the already existing Lanson Extra Age Brut and the Lanson Extra Age Rosé. This latest offering – Lanson Blanc de Blancs Extra Age – now completes the trilogy.
Produced exclusively from Grand Cru Chardonnay grapes from vintage years 2003, 2004 and 2005, Lanson Blanc de Blanc Extra Age is produced with an absence of malolactic fermentation (MLF). Non-MLF production allows the flavours and aromas of the champagne to be fruitier and much closer to that of still wines. Along with extra aging (at least five years) this produces a champagne of extreme delicacy.
The approximate retail price for Lanson Blanc de Blancs Extra Age Champagne is €60.
