Delivery Details

Clos Lanson 2006 Champagne made by Hervé Dantan, Winemaker at Lanson since 2013, learned all of Lanson's production secrets and philosophy of the house from Jean-Paul Gandon, his predecessor of 30 years. Dantan is now in full control on the Clos Lanson production and comments "You get very special Chardonnay from Clos Lanson - it's very generous in character but never forgets to be elegant. It's never rich, and has a mineral core."

The Clos is situated in the heart of the city of Reims, overlooked by the magnificent Notre Dame de Reims Cathedral and this 1-hectare plot is surrounded by walls. A Chardonnay plot that, in previous years, has ended up in the assemblage of other vintages. Facing temperatures of 2 degrees higher than in the usual vineyards in Reims, this walled plot has a much riper yield. Lanson is one of the first producers to harvest, due to this plot's micro-climate. It contains very chalky soil and this creates the ideal growing for the vines and grapes.

Due to the size of the plot, production is limited. Only 7,780 bottles were created and each is Individually numbered and prior to bottling the wines are vinified in wood for 6-8 months. Dantan suggests that the dosage is low at 2/3 g/L as the "wine is very expressive and generous."

On the palate, it is very delicate, lemon and ripe fruits are abundant, leading to a mid palate of toasted biscuits and vanilla.The length of flavour is long at the finish and there is so much fruit in this Champagne you just cant believe it has so little dosage.
