Extra Age Blanc de Blancs

For this Extra Age (X.A.) Blanc de Blancs, Lanson has selected Chardonnay grapes from Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards (Avize, Cramant, Oiry, Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger).
Blended and then aged in the winery’s cellars for a minimum of five years, Extra Age Blanc de Blancs is a harmonious wine with a clear gold color brought to life by a persistent stream of exquisitely tiny bubbles. During the years spent in the cellar, the wine developed fresh white floral aromas reminiscent of hawthorn and lime blossom, which add a sensation of lightness.
The first palate impression is soft, gradually opening up to reveal notes of summer pear, white peach and fine puff pastry. The finish is precise and ends on a note of mineral freshness.
