The 2009 harvest offered a complex wine that is characterised by its richness, its freshness, its generous aromatic expression, and its balance. The colour is straw yellow, sparkling with fine bubbles. The aromas of pears, apricots, candied fruits, honey, acacia flowers and lime blossom form an intense bouquet.
Lanson owns a wonderful collection of vintages, offering a balanced blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It has made the demanding choice to only declare vintage the years considered exceptional. 1904, 1928, 1955, 1964, 1971, 1976, 1985, 1990 and 2009 are all great vintages, demonstrating the capacity of our wines to transcend time while retaining an incomparable freshness.
In 2009, the grapes reached maturity following a perfect summertime which the Champagne region had not known since 2003. The weather was hot, dry and extremely sunny for veraison in the last two weeks of August. Thanks to a rainy period at the beginning of September, the grapes were able to fatten before harvest. The prompt return of hot weather on the 5th of September enabled the grapes to reach maturity under perfect conditions and to give a great richness to the wines.
