The Black Création Spirit “Recreating the finest expression of the Lanson style with each harvest is a duty of memory and a challenge that requires creativity and humility towards nature. Each Création is unique and writes a new page in our story, one that we share with the utmost transparency”. Hervé Dantan | Winemaker at Maison Lanson

Hervé Dantan | Winemaker at Maison Lanson
A velvet revolution
Combining a sense of heritage with expertise, our Winemakers have perpetuated for over 260 years a characterful, fresh and elegant style, with our multi-vintage brut as its signature.
When he joined as Winemaker in 2013, Hervé Dantan set about enriching this heritage. By adapting to the uniqueness of each harvest, he redesigned the production facility, reshaped our expertise and worked to develop cultural practices to take the precision of our blends even further.
Hervé Dantan redefines Le Black Label with Le Black Création.
The single-parcel approach
We benefit from a unique colour palette available to us in order to compose our blends in line with the Lanson identity and with the perfect balance gifted to us by nature.
We practise committed viticulture based on a proximity to our vineyards and a comprehensive understanding of the specificity of each terroir, which allows us to be even more meticulous in selecting our grapes on the estates of our partner growers and our own Lanson vineyards.
The culture of reserve wines
Over the centuries, our Winemakers have built a veritable library of reserve wines spanning over 20 years.
To take the aromatic depth of our blends even further, in 2013 Hervé Dantan established a “perpetual reserve”, maintained every year from the previous blend. A part of this reserve wine, aged in stainless steel, is a mark of identity. The other, aged in barrels, is guided towards its finest expression through this additional breathability that is only possible with wood.
An assertive style
Our Winemakers have always preserved the original principle of Champagne vinification, with predominantly non-malolactic fermentation. This historic expertise allows the wines to retain a wonderful vitality and great aromatic richness over the years.
Mindful of this founding vision, Hervé Dantan set himself a technical challenge by combining this traditional method with a small proportion of wines that have been through malolactic fermentation.
The Lanson style is asserted and shaped over time. Each Création spends four years in our cellars.
