48% Chardonnay, 52% Pinot Noir Crus from Cramant, Oger, Verzenay
The style of the Lanson House is based on 3 pillars: fruity, power and freshness. This signature comes from two essential elements:
- The choice of grape varieties, a majority of Pinot Noir for body and potency, and a third of Chardonnay for elegance, finesse and aromatic richness.
- The traditional winemaking method without malolactic fermentation. This specificity, pledge of freshness allows the optimal development of the aromas from the fruit and highlights the original purity of the grapes. This process preserves all the natural acidity of the grapes and predestines the cuvées to a happy aging and makes them real wines of guard.
A l'oeil: Lanson 1990 offers an amber gold color with copper highlights.
On the nose: dominate the powerful aromas of honey, fir, wax and gingerbread.
On the palate: the attack is full and complex with honey flavors and sweet spices: cinnamon, vanilla. The finish on candied orange highlights the great richness of this exceptional vintage.
Each bottle is based on the optimal conditions of the historical cellars of the House. Each acquisition is treated with the particular care of custom craft as a real "special order":
- The disgorging is done on the fly. This operation consists in extracting the concentrated yeast deposit in the neck of the bottle.
- The tasting of the wine is carried out by the Cellar Master himself or a member of his team tightened to ensure the perfect conformity of the champagne contained in the bottle.
- Clogging, muzzling and dressing are done by hand in the purest Champagne tradition.
- The box enveloping this beautiful bottle includes a film of the Chef de Caves detailing the characteristics of the vintage.
