Lanson Extra Age "XA" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

SKU #1112614 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Creamy, textured wine, with a lively mousse and a balance of fine toasty age and fresh citrus fruits. It shows a dry character, firm and mineral, very textured with the weight to make it a food Champagne.  (12/ 2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Soft and creamy in texture, with a floral overtone and a minerally base note accenting the flavors of orchard fruit, pastry, kumquat and pickled ginger. Fresh, with a clean finish that echoes the mineral note. Drink now through 2020.  (12/ 2012)

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
