Lanson, Brut Gold Label Reims 2002

Vintage Collectables, Santa Rosa CA.

53% Pinot Noir, 47% Chardonnay.  PN from vineyards in Aÿ, Louvois, Verzenay and Verzy. Chardonnay from vinyeards in Cramant and Le Mesnil.  No malo.  Dosage: 11 g/l.  Disgorged December 2013.

From magnum.

Deep yellow gold.   A soulful oxidation, real sexpot Champagne.   Sweet waffle and tree fruit and the fat of the clean lees.  The acidity is invigorating; the finish, mineralic and precise.  Now – 2025+.
