Wine Information

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: To the eye the Noble Cuvée Blanc de Blancs Vintage has a green gold colour. In the glass, it exudes constant strings of very delicate bubbles. On the nose, it exudes a generous acacia and citrus fruit bouquet.On the palate, the full, well-rounded and long lasting concentration of flavours gives this wine its charm, and ends with a final citrus flourish that bears a double seal of quality : the LANSON taste and the year that was 1996.


The Noble Cuvée Blanc de Blancs Vintage constitutes the aperitif par excellence for people who love Chardonnay. It is also a perfect companion for scampi, scallops, and fish in cream sauce

Vintage 2002

A cold winter and a mild late spring cued for a perfect June allowing early and fast flowering. Outstanding weather conditions prevailed and the season went on without dramatic turns. Rains in August raised concerns regarding gray rot, but finally sunshine and dry conditions throughout September resulted in an abundant crop of largely healthy fruit (11,930 kg/ha). Dehydration due to wind further aided in achieving perfect ripeness and additional concentration. This, and the cool nights, helped in retaining fresh acidity and, despite the ripeness (10.3% potential alcohol), the wines did not suffer from heaviness or a lack of life. A near-perfect vintage, which produced balanced Champagnes consistently around the region. The best show an impeccable combination of freshness, power, structure and finesse. However, some have matured aromatically quicker than expected and are already past their peak. 2002 produced an abundance of spectacular champagnes, such as Dom Pérignon (the entire range), Krug Vintage and Clos du Mesnil, Piper-Heidsieck Rare, Louis Roederer Cristal and Cristal Rosé, Ruinart Dom Ruinart and Dom Ruinart Rosé, Salon Le Mesnil and Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, to name a few.

Written Notes

“Tight, sulphuric smoky-mineral nose with tropical fruit underneath. Firm, zesty, well focused palate with long succulent length with a hefty yet balanced dosage. Highly youthful still. Hopefully the reductive sulphuric note will settle.”

Inside Information

Through the clear bottle the eyes may feast on this unique champagne, made exclusively from the Chardonnay grape. After long years of maturing deep in the cellars, this cuvée will delight all lovers of champagne.
 

One of the oldest champagne house, Lanson was founded in 1760 by Francois Delamotte, a magistrate from the Reims. The values and expertise that created the unique and enduring style of Champagne Lanson have been handed down from generation to generation. Since 1760, this has been the guiding philosophy of the successive generations that have promoted Lanson throughout the world.

 

Centuries in the dedicated pursuit of perfection have established the House of Lanson as one of the premier champagne makers. Today, the marriage of a contemporary dynamism with age-old tradition brings pleasure to millions the world over.
 

Champagne Lanson is one of the few houses in the Champagne region that chooses not to use malolactic fermentation. This decision guarantees the freshness and optimal development of the wines' flavours, allowing vintages to mature fully and evolve their complete array of aromas.
