Founded in 1760 by François Delamotte, a local magistrate, Lanson was created with the objective of bringing Champagne to foreign markets. This focus never faltered, even after François’ son, Nicholas-Louis, took over and partnered with Jean-Baptiste Lanson, who gave the company its name. On the contrary, by the late 1800s, Lanson was supplying Champagne to multiple royal courts, and currently remains a Champagne purveyor to the British royal family. Although Lanson produces remarkable vintage, non-vintage and Multi-Millésimé wines, it is its Prestige, or Noble Cuvée, that represent the best of this splendid House. Carefully selected from Grand Crus, they are exemplary in their elegance, excellence and delicacy, and allow the Chardonnay component to truly shine. There are three stars in the Lanson Noble Cuvée galaxy: Brut Vintage, which offers purity and style without sacrificing intensity; the fruity, elegant and honey-kissed Blanc de Blancs; and Brut Rosé, featuring an incomparable brightness and citrusy delight. After more than 250 years, Lanson has remained loyal to three things: process purity (the House does not integrate malolactic fermentation), blending, and timing. With its incredible stature and achievements in Champagne production, it’s easy to see why their philosophy has lasted.
