Regarding the Champagne Lanson Clos Lanson 2008
Vinified separately, the wines from Clos Lanson have unique and rare characteristics that have always seduced the House's Cellar Masters. In 2006, the decision was taken to offer the eponymous Cuvée Clos Lanson, the only hectare of vines within the historic city limits of Reims.
Clos Lanson 2008 is a 100% Chardonnay Champagne, the juice from which comes exclusively from the first press, and is vinified for several months in oak barrels from the Argonne forest, in accordance with Victor Lanson's wishes. After thirteen years' ageing in our cellars, the result is a precious wine of great finesse and remarkable purity.
This cuvée with its fine bubbles reveals a precise, lively nose, with a beautiful freshness. On the palate, notes of pear and yuzu offer great finesse. Ageing in oak barrels brings out woody hazelnut flavors. This 2008 vintage offers an excellent balance between concentration and freshness.
Clos Lanson 2008 has all the attributes of a great Chardonnay. Please note that there are only 6768 bottles, all numbered and in their superb wooden cases.
A great Chardonnay to enjoy with shellfish or grilled sea bass. It's presented in a luxurious wooden box.
