97pts Wine Enthusiast

Produced from a small walled vineyard close to the Lanson winery in Reims, this is a splendid wine. Its richness is balanced by the intense freshness and minerality of the Chardonnay, with apple and citrus flavors that still in the background. Now mature, this wine is ready to drink. *Editors’ Choice* 

94pts John Gilman

The 2007 Clos Lanson was disgorged in July of 2016, after more than eight years aging sur latte. This is the second iteration of this bottling to be released, made from a tiny parcel of vines right out behind the winery in the heart of Reims, with the inaugural vintage having been the 2006. The 2007 Clos Lanson was given a very modest dosage of three grams per liter and allowed an additional year of cellar aging to recover after its disgorgement prior to release into the market. The wine offers up a beautiful and very refined bouquet of apple, pear, fresh-baked bread, a lovely base of soil, discreet smokiness, almond and a gentle topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, focused, full-bodied and very refined in profile, with a lovely core, elegant mousse, excellent complexity and a long, zesty and beautifully balanced finish. This is outstanding wine! (Drink between 2018-2040)

94pts Wine Advocate

Disgorged in July 2016 with only three grams per liter dosage, the 2007 Brut Blanc de Blancs Clos Lanson is showing very well indeed, unwinding in the glass with notes of dried white flowers, citrus oil, toasted brioche, oyster shell and smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and vibrant, with a racy spine of acidity, good concentration and chalky structuring extract. This is quite a tightly knit, tensile wine, despite the warm mesoclimate and two years on cork, which suggests it will enjoy a long future.

93pts Vinous

Outer quote mark Clos Lanson's 2007 Brut Blanc de Blancs is a very pretty, soft Champagne that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Bright citrus and floral notes, along with soft contours, give much of its immediacy and sheer allure. Understated and classy, the 2007 will drink well for a number of years, but it is also remarkably giving and enjoyable today for a relatively young Blanc de Blancs. Although it is not super-complex, the 2007 offers quite a bit of freshness and character. An open bottle was still in great shape when I re-tasted it a few days later. Disgorged: July 2016.

93pts Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fragrant, featuring lime blossom and ground spice notes, this fine and creamy Champagne offers a broad range of lemon parfait, chopped hazelnut, spun honey and dried cherry flavors, underscored by chalky minerality. Elegant and well-knit, with a firm, focused finish. Disgorged July 2016. Drink now through 2030.
