As one of the oldest holders of the Royal Warrant, we’re a family-run House in the capital of Champagne, Reims.
Within the grounds of the House, you’ll find the last remaining walled vineyard in Reims, known as a Clos Lanson. We also boast a library of fine and rare vintages of Champagne Lanson stored in the limestone cellars that lie underneath the House in Reims.
Traditional champagne winemaking gives each vintage blend the ability to age gracefully, and at Lanson, these bottles rest in the cellars for at least five years before we release them. This is just one of the many traditional methods we use to enable us to produce such carefully crafted and great tasting champagne.
As we’ve been producing some of the world’s finest champagnes since 1760, each carefully considered part of our craft has been passed down from generation to generation throughout all these years.
It’s no wonder our champagne is famous across the globe.
Lanson Champagne is proud to partner with some of the most popular events both UK and globally and look forward with sharing photos and insider knowledge of these events shortly!
