07 Jun French Newspaper “Le Figaro” publishes an article about Lanson Extra Age Rosé in its Wine & Spirits special issue>
For it has produced rosé champagnes since 1950, Lanson － one of the oldest houses in Champagne － is the pioneer in the creation and development of rosé labels. With a blending of 50 to 60 different « crus », Lanson Brut Rosé Label offers a bright salmon-pink robe. Half a century ago (in 2004), Lanson finally launched Jean-Paul Gandon’s – Cellar Master of the House – Noble Cuvée Rosé : a champagne obtained from the blending of white and black grapes from grands crus vineyards (6 in total) ; added to Pinots from Verzenay and Bouzy, the champagne shows a luminous and light pink color to the eye in its refined transparent bottle.
Subsequently, Lanson launched Extra Age Rosé in celebration of its 250th Anniversary. Before being unveiled, this multi-vintage champagne (2002, 2004 and 2005) has been aged for a minimum of five years. Extra Age Rosé – also known as «XA» – has been highly praised ever since it was launched on the market. Renowed Chef Alain Ducasse’s two flagship establishments – the Plaza Athenee Hotel and the famous Jules Verne Restaurant – feature Extra Age Rosé as one of the recommended wine.
