Lanson

Lanson

Lanson is one of the oldest Houses in Champagne having been established in 1760 by Francois Delamotte. After a very brief tenureship under LVMH Lanson was bought (minus the vineyards) by Marne et Champagne.

Lanson has had, shall we say, a rather colourful history. One thing, however, has stayed constant, namely the House's commitment to a style which involves the suppression of the malolactic fermentation with a concomitant purity and honesty evidenced in its flavour profile. Now, with the quality of the fruit improved, the ownership secure and the ageing régime lengthened, the results are impressive indeed. Orchard fruit with a steely, flinty backdrop, then hints of sherbet, meringue and biscuit, a generous mousse, and a rich finish.

Its Non Vintage Black label Brut Champagne is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier.
