The Houses

Champagne Lanson in Reims
House founded in 1760

The prestigious LANSON is one of the oldest Champagne Houses. When creating its wines, it highlights the fruit and its rich aromas in its quest for purity. The freshness and energy that are the hallmarks of LANSON's style increase their cellaring potential and predestine the cuvées for aging. With its longstanding international presence, LANSON has built up strong positions, particularly in the UK, where the House has held a Royal Warrant continuously since 1900, awarded by Queen Victoria. LANSON Champagnes are distributed across all channels (mass retail stores, wine stores, gourmet food stores, fine-dining restaurants, hotels).

LANSON is rolling out a long-term value strategy based on the regular premiumization of high-quality wines. New outstanding quality listings such as “LANSON Green Label”, an organic cuvée that has received a positive response from the market, are helping support its presence in value-creating segments, particularly on international markets. Alongside this, LANSON is finalizing its major investment program to modernize its industrial facilities and support its commercial operations, which will make it possible to further improve the quality of its wines, its commercial responsiveness and its international reach

They give it the light effervescence that is the hallmark of BESSERAT DE BELLEFON Champagnes.
