Lanson is one of the oldest houses in Champagne, founded in and family owned since 1760.
2008 is now accepted as a truly exquisite vintage and this blend of 53% pinot noir and 47% chardonnay, all sourced from grand cru vineyards, bears this out in some style. Despite its ten years of age, the wine's generous but youthful green-apple and lemon aromas show that there is plenty of time in hand. Its bright fresh acidity, underpinned by toasty richness, really showcases this stunning year. The grapes are sourced entirely from grand cru vineyards, and the class shows.
