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.

Critical Acclaim

"Light, bright gold. Intense, spice- and floral-accented aromas and flavors of poached pear, honey, orange pith and buttered toast. Fleshy and deep but very lively, with strong finishing cut and lingering toast and floral notes. The Extra Age (sometimes abbreviated to "XA") bottlings are aged for five years in Lanson's cellars before disgorgement and release."
91 Points

"This blend of pinot noir (60%) and chardonnay is aged a minimum of five years on the lees. The color of the wine is a delicate, light pink, and red fruit notes hold sway in its flavors - strawberry, tomato, red currant - all held tight in a complex layering with chalk. A distinctive style, this will benefit from further bottle age, or will soften up in the company of roast squab. "

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
