Direct from Lanson Cellars - the Noble Cuvée is the ultimate expression of the Lanson style based on a rigorous selection of grapes exclusively from Grands Crus vineyards Verzenay, Avize and Oger. For the Brut, only 10 vintages were selected in the last 30 years, which makes this mature Champagne something very special indeed.

94 Points - James Suckling  "Quite bright, fine and elegant on the nose. The complexity is subtly delivered, with lime and lemon citrus as the focus on the nose. The palate has lime sorbet flavor, really fine, focused acidity and a great sense of evenness. The duality of power and grace is quite masterfully delivered. Drink now or age for a further five years to catch this at its best."

Taste & Aroma

93 points - Wine Enthusiast  

Most Champagnes from the 2000 vintage are now mature, and this wine is no exception. It is soft, rounded with crisp fruits that have integrated with the crumbled-cookie tastes and fragrant acidity. This floral wine has just the edge of mineral texture and is ready to drink.

93 points - Wine Spectator 

Racy acidity and fine texture frame this smoky version, with roast nut and oyster shell accents to the subtle flavors of buttered brioche, glazed apple and pear, spring blossom and lemon zest.

Producer

Region

The Champagne region is one of the country’s most important wine regions and has been producing champagne for over 1000 years. South of Reims, Épernay is the capital and main trading ground for the area. French wine laws state that only sparkling wines from this region can be labelled as Champagne and they must adhere to strict appellation standards. 

The chalky soil (good for both water retention and also drainage) is perfect for the grapes needed for Champagne; Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. Unlike the southern regions of France, Champagne has a mild, steady climate with low levels of sunshine with the ideal amount of rain. Wines from this region command high prices, often considerably more than other sparkling wines. We recommend Billecart Salmon Cuvee Brut Sous Bois or Egly Ouriet Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru.
