Clos Lanson - A Secret Garden
Just opposite Notre Dame de Reims Cathedral lies a unique plot of one hectare surrounded by tall protective walls, that dates back to the 18th century: Clos Lanson. Situated on top of the hill where the House of Lanson and its wine cellars are also located, Clos Lanson benefits from a distinctive microclimate and particularly chalky soil.The vineyard is treated just like a family garden due to its small size and the special care and attention that it has always received.
The vines of Clos Lanson have always been a favourite of the House’s owners and are visited daily by the Wine-Maker. In order to carry on the Lanson family spirit, every year the men and women of the house help harvest this precious plot, selecting only flawless, quality grape bunches for the production of Clos Lanson Champagne.
Clos Lanson is an ideal Champagne to celebrate all of life's great moments. An exceptional aperitif, its complexity will delight the connoisseur's palate
After a long maturation, the Clos Lanson 2006 has all the attributes of a very fine Chardonnay that has benefited from a controlled fermentation in wooden barrels and optimum development in the House's Cellars.
In the flute, the wine is a pale golden colour with a fine stream of bubbles. It has a wide range of delicately woody aromas where ripe fruit intertwines with notes of butter, vanilla, patisserie and hazelnut, punctuated with a soupçon of smoke.
The palate is rich, with concentrated fruit flavours combined with toasted, biscuity notes. The finish remains fresh, with an impressive length of flavour reflecting the noble origins of the grapes.
