Lanson 'Le Clos Lanson' 2007
Located in the heart of Reims, le Clos Lanson is the only hectare of vineyard to remain within the historical walls of the city. Hidden behind high walls, this single vineyard of chardonnay dating back to the 18th century offers a breathtaking view of the Cathedral. Located just above the House cellars, le Clos Lanson is farmed like a true garden both because of its unique location and the special care it receives on a daily basis. In addition this single vineyard benefits from a very pure, chalky soil and an exceptional microclimate which is favorable for the development of the vine. Each year only a very limited number of vintage bottles are produced.
On the eye: Pale gold color with a myriad of very fine bubbles.
On the nose: Pure and seductive on the nose, revealing notes of ripe fruits, dried fruits and vanilla. Aromas of white peach, bergamot, hazelnut, almond and pastries come on after another with finesse and complexity.
On the palate: The wine starts with smoothness and creaminess. A wave of white and citrus fruits, notes of pastries and finally a very delicate woody note are expressed with harmony. The finish is dense, long and fresh.
John Dory, slow-cooked leeks and shellfish jus. Roasted langoustine.
