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
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.
