To the eye:
Extra Age is a vibrant straw yellow colour with fine bubbles.
On the nose:
Aromas of fig, winter pear and honey, combined with bready notes reminiscent of french pastries.
On the palate:
Full bodied and complex with a finale of finesse and freshness.
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Aged five years after bottling prior to release, this is an exceptional wine. It has the hallmark dryness of Lanson, along with toast and ripe white-fruit flavors. Its tangy with lemon zest and crisp apple flavors that meld harmoniously. Ready to drink now. (Dec 2013)
