The Story

The House of Lanson is one of a select few to possess a truly impressive collection of fine vintage champagnes. Each coveted bottle has been carefully crafted by the longstanding Chef des Caves whose passion and devotion complements the classical blending techniques of preceding generations.
The marriage of the finest selection of grapes from a single year, each champagne in the Lanson Vintage Collection is the epitome of true craftsmanship and reflects the House’s perpetual quest for excellence. A small number of bottles that date back to 1976 are proposed to a restricted circle of connoisseurs each year.

Written Notes

Probably the greatest Lanson I have tasted. The wine is almost heroic in its dimensions, and amazingly vital in its color and mousse. The nose opens slowly to reveal all the colors of the rainbow. The Champagne is very masculine, with nuances of juniper and Havana cigars. The wine is astoundingly heavy and full bodied, with the same aromas as the nose. The finish is a textbook example of the vintage: very dry and tough, fiery and rich in tannin. Lovely at the Millennium Tasting. Certain bottles breathe—strangely enough—young, floral Chardonnay.
