Description & Technical Information
-
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.

Weather: The 1976 season was a warm vintage overall, with flowering in early June. A very hot and dry summer produced grapes of great maturity and quality with very high potential alcohol levels. Champagnes from this vintage are rich, vinous and soft with heaps of character without overbearing strength.
