Notes from the Winemaker:

Lanson Extra Age (X.A) Rosé is the result of over fifty years’ pioneering expertise in the creation of rosé champagne. This delicate, fresh blend combines Chardonnay (35%) and Pinot Noir (65%) from selected “grand cru” vineyards (Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Verzenay, Bouzy) and a marriage of three great Lanson vintages: 2002, 2004 and 2005.

Blended and then aged at least five years in our cellars, Extra Age Rosé is a generous, rich, full-bodied wine with an elegant copper colour enlivened by a myriad of fine bubbles that release olfactory notes of ripe red fruit and sweets dominated by fragrances of home-made strawberry jam. On the palate, acid flavours recalling wild strawberries, redcurrants and vine peach give way to a persistent finish combining freshness and delicacy.

Food Pairing: Lanson Extra Age is an ideal accompaniment for lamb and desserts with fresh red fruits.

Ratings & Reviews
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"The palest pink in color, this is a mature, ripe Champagne. It certainly hints at the extra age (five years in the cellar) which gives it a glow of richness and toasty flavors. Fine lines of acidity cut through the full texture to give a wonderful, balanced wine that is ready to drink." - Roger Voss (12/1/2013)

92 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Firm and smoky, with hints of oyster shell and chopped walnut accenting the dried white cherry, baked plum, candied orange zest and biscuit flavors. Presents a lasting, minerally finish. Drink now through 2021. 200 cases imported." – AN (Mar 31, 2016)

92 Points - Vinous:
"(65% pinot noir and 35% chardonnay, from 2005, 2004 and 2002; disgorged December, 2011; Lot 2/60633.03): Light orange. A heady, complex bouquet evokes blood orange, raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices, with a toasty overtone. Fleshy, mineral-accented red fruit flavors are braced by juicy acidity and pick up smoke and floral pastille nuances with air. Penetrating and precise on an impressively long finish of lingering rose and orange zest." - Josh Raynolds (Dec 2012)
