Champagne Lanson Overview
+
Lanson's prestige cuvée is produced from a careful selection of grapes from Grand Cru rated vineyards only. The very essence of the Lanson style, Noble Cuvée embodies all the fruity, grape-flavour freshness so characteristic of the House.

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness, perfect for the enhanced delicacy of this pure-Chardonnay Lanson Noble Cuvée. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last twenty years.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 13 years on the lees
Disgorged: June 2015
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: 2014-2028

Tasting Note: A vibrant yellow golden hue with a fine stream of bubbles. On the nose initial fruits of citrus and subtle lime impress. On the palate the initially quite tight acidity opens up to a bold toasty mid-palate with an abundance of orchard fruits. Very complex already and sure to develop further given some more ageing, this is an exquisite expression of a flawless vintage.

“70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir. Disgorged June 2016. Dosage 6 g/l.
Light nose and lots of both apparent sweetness and acidity. Not yet married but certainly ambitious. A tad astringent on the finish. A little simple but perhaps it will take on more interest. Tense but promising. Very lacy and fine with real breadth of exotic flavour.
Drink 2018-2028”

“Bright and clear with a gentle effervescence of fine bubbles. The nose shows attractive almond, lemon and floral notes. The palate is crispy dry and elegant with granny smith apples, medium toasty notes and good minerality.”

“Disgorged June 2015. RS 6 g/l. Supplied by Lanson UK.
Tasted blind. Great energy. Real interest on the nose and pretty high acid still on the palate (which should have led me to Lanson). A little astringent on the end. Slightly loose textured. And not that long. But it improved in the glass. According to The Finest Bubble’s scorekeeper, I gave this wine 18 but I was too busy to keep a record of it on my laptop.”

“Lanson's 2002 Noble Cuvée Blanc des Blancs Millésime Brut is 100% Chardonnay from Grand Cru villages. It is a rich, ripe and round Blanc de Blancs that combines its smooth opulence with freshness, elegance, finesse and purity. Excellent and still on its way.”

“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.”
