As one of the oldest holders of the Royal Warrant, Lanson is 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. They 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 being released. This is just one of the many traditional methods they use to produce carefully crafted and great tasting champagne. As they’ve been producing some of the world’s finest champagnes since 1760, each carefully considered part of their craft has been passed down from generation to generation.
For its 250th anniversary the House of Lanson created an emblematic cuvée to “showcase” its style, emulating the traditionally complex and fresh style maintained by classic Lanson champagnes since 1760.
Extra Age is a blend of special vintage years bringing together the best Champagne Crus. Traditional vinification methods enable the original purity of the fruit to be maintained and bring great freshness. Ageing and slow maturation on the lees enable Lanson Extra Age to fully express the character and richness of its aromas.
