Clos Lanson Millesime 2006 Champagne Gift Box 75cl

75cl
£162.50

Hervé Dantan, Winemaker at Lanson since 2013, learnt all Lanson's production secrets and philosophy of the house from Jean-Paul Gandon, his predecessor at the helm for 30 years previously. 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. In 2006, the company was sold and when the new owners came across this unique and extraordinary plot it was inevitable that the plot should be used to create its own single vineyard Champagne. 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. Each of the 7,780 bottles created are 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."

Chardonnay
Grape Blend: 
100% Chardonnay
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.
