Located in the heart of Reims and facing the Cathedral, the Clos Lanson is the secret garden of the Mason. This historic one-hectare plot only produces a very limited number of bottles each year. The very chalky soil and the microclimate enjoyed by the Clos Lanson allow it to develop complex notes. Its rarity and exceptional aromas make it a precious wine.
After a long maturation, the Clos Lanson 2006 has all the attributes of a very fine Chardonnay that has benefited from a controlled fermentation in wooden barrels and optimum development in the House's Cellars.
In the flute, the wine is a pale golden colour with a fine stream of bubbles. It has a wide range of delicately woody aromas where ripe fruit intertwines with notes of butter, vanilla, patisserie and hazelnut, punctuated with a soupçon of smoke.
The palate is rich, with concentrated fruit flavours combined with toasted, biscuity notes. The finish remains fresh, with an impressive length of flavour reflecting the noble origins of the grapes.
