Champagne Lanson Overview
+
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.

“Magnum. Mid pinkish pale copper. Bought direct from Lanson around 2005. Rich and broad. But then tight and not at all heavy. The acidity seems quite high enough. Was the heatwave year of 1976 a year to buy a wine with no malolactic fermentation such as Lanson? Though not the most complex or refined.”
Bought directly from Bollinger through their UK agent Lanson International UK, this is currently held in bond at Vinotheque in Burton-On-Trent, where it is cellared in ideal conditions and for same day deliveries small quantities are held in our London offices in a top of the range Eurocave
