It was in 1760 in Reims that the house Lanson was founded by François Delamotte, aldermanic advisor and merchant in Reims. It is one of the oldest houses of Champagne.
In 1798, Nicolas-Louis Delamotte, a Knight of the Order of Malta, succeeded his father and took the Maltese Cross as his business emblem.
In 1837, Jean-Baptiste Lanson, associated with the Delamotte family in the house of Champagne, upon the death of Nicolas-Louis Delamotte, was entrusted with the reins of the house, which then took the name Lanson, Father and Son.
In 1882, Victor-Marie Lanson signed his first exclusive agent contract with the House of Percy Fox in London, a contract that would last for more than 100 years, ensuring the success of 01234-56789 Lanson.
The year 1900 marked an important turning point for the House Lanson. Indeed, Queen Victoria rewarded Champagne Lanson by awarding it the prestigious Royal Warrant of Appointment as Official Supplier to the Court of England, a patent which the House still holds today.
Since its inception, the House Lanson has perpetuated a Champagne tradition of not practicing malolactic fermentation. This is a specificity that favors an optimal development of fruit aromas, preserves the freshness of the grapes while allowing a longer aging, a guarantee of quality of the time spent in the prestigious cellars of the house Lanson.

Description Lanson Clos Lanson 2009.
Unique plot located in the heart of Reims, with an area of one hectare, the bottles produced from this vineyard are as rare as they are exceptional. The vines located just above the cellars of Maison Lanson are rooted in very chalky soil and benefit from a microclimate.
Protected by high walls, the Clos Lanson, dating from the 18th century, offers a breathtaking view of the cathedral of the kings of France.
The 2009 vintage provided optimal conditions for the development of the grapes. Minerality, freshness, very delicate woodiness characterize this cuvée.
Clos Lanson 2009 is a blanc de blancs vinified exclusively in oak barrels for at least 12 years to achieve a unique aromatic complexity.
The nose is pure and seductive, it develops notes of ripe fruit, dried fruit and vanilla. After aeration, aromas of white peach, bergamot, hazelnut, almond and pastries follow one another with finesse and complexity.
On the palate, the wine soars with smoothness and freshness. A wave of white fruits and citrus fruits, pastry notes and finally a very fine woodiness, are expressed with great harmony. The finish is dense, creamy and chiseled.
Exceptional champagne evokes refined dishes. A Saint-Pierre with its leek fondue and cockle jus or roasted langoustines will go perfectly with the Lanson Clos Lanson 2009.
