The philosophy

The original style of Champagne since 1760

The choice for richness

Since 1760, the house of Lanson has remained family own. Faithful to its heritage, Lanson Champagnes have always been made the original way, offering an exceptional development of flavors while preserving the natural purity of the fruit. This historical commitment makes Lanson wines more fresh, crisp and elegant with a longer ageing potential.
A truly unique style.

The search for purity

The freshness and energy that are key to the Lanson style are closely linked to the House’s historic commitment to using a traditional wine-making method, without malolactic fermentation. Lanson emphasises the fruit and the richness of aromas in a search for purity in its wines.

The art of blending

Wines from different plots are vinified separately. Through numerous tasting sessions they are assessed and classed according to their aromatic family. Blending is the art of creating a wine that is superior to the sum of its parts.

The palette of flavours, and the talent of Winemaker Hervé Dantan, come together to create the perfect balance of fruitiness, elegance and freshness.

The time factor

The richness of the grape varieties and Crus is complemented by the richness of different years. Adding reserve wines helps to amplify the quality of young wines.

Non-vintage cuvées are therefore composed of reserve wines and more than 10 different years of harvests, and are left to age in the Cellar for at least three years.

The vintage Cuvées take this time to mature and continue to develop their extraordinary aromas. Lanson wines journey through time perfectly.
