Winemaker's Notes:

To mark its 250th anniversary, Lanson opted to innovate while remaining true to its tradition and know-how by releasing a special cuvee to commemorate this milestone. Extra Age is a multi-vintage blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir selected only from Grands Cru and Premier Cru vineyards. To maintain a style that has combined both complexity and freshness since 1760, Extra Age marries the outstanding characters of several great vintages: 1999, 2002 and 2003.

Extra Age pays homage to the rich history of the House while setting a bold statement for the future direction of Champagne Lanson.

About Lanson:

The Lanson Style is comprised of character traits that can be found in Lanson Champagnes year after year, making them uniquely expressive.

The result of a longstanding tradition, Lanson Champagnes owe their superior quality to a past filled with rituals and a spirit that have been preserved over the years. They embody the ideas, ambitions and character of a great House, and their style is truly unique in the Champagne region.

Today, thanks to specific, fine-tuned know-how, elegant, fresh and powerful wines embody the quintessential Lanson Style.
