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.

The 1998 vintage shows all the hallmarks of a truly outstanding year. The features of the vintage were a high natural sugar content in the grapes and an excellent level of acidity, indicating an exceptional overall balance and long ageing potential.

“Nuanced fruity nose of French pastry, confectionary, acacia, vanilla and ripe apple. Tight and focused palate with elegant cool fruit impression, juicy texture and a long fruity length. Appealing but with good degree of personality and depth. Drinking now but is still on its way up. A fine effort from Lanson this year. ”
