James Suckling 93
"A bright, fruity ros with peaches and light strawberries. Tangerines, too. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture. This is a blended wine with only 7 red wines. Pretty red fruit with the same freshness as the normal black label. Very fresh and vivid. Four years on the lees. Drink now."-JS
Wine Spectator 92
"A racy streak of tangy mineral underscores the flavors of pink grapefruit granita and slivered almond in this vibrant version, with hints of toast and orchard blossom. Well-knit and elegant, with a lasting, spiced finish. Disgorged July 2016. Drink now through 2022."-WS

"Pale salmon color: fresh, juicy and showing raspberry and strawberry; tangy, lively and charming, crisp, elegant, long and balanced."-TP
Wine Enthusiast 91
"The beautifully judged pale-orange-pink color of this delicious wine is a sign of the balance in the glass. It is crisp and towards the dry end of Brut, typical of the Lanson style. There is fine acidity and a crisp texture from the Chardonnay in the blend. Hints of red fruits come through along with a touch of tannin. The wine is ready to drink."-WE
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90
"Based on the 2014 vintage and disgorged in December 2019 with eight grams per liter dosage, Lanson's NV Brut Le Ros is showing nicely, offering up aromas of peach, crisp orchard fruit, pink grapefruit and warm brioche. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and incisive, with a racy spine of acidity and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a saline finish. This is quite tightly wound out of the gates, and I suspect it possesses a bit of upside."-RP
"Smoky, mineral aromas and lean, lively and wonderfully tense expression on the palate; fresh with understated complexity and clean saline finish."-DM
"Lanson Rose has a beautiful pure color with pale salmon touches. Aromas of roses and fruit predominate, with discrete notes of red berries. The initial impression is tender, well-rounded and fresh. This wine has harmonious balance and good length on the finish. Delicious served with fresh red berry desserts or simply on its own."-Winemaker Notes
"Founded in 1760, Lanson is one of the oldest Champagne Houses.
Drawing on family heritage and unique expertise, the men and women of Lanson have been guided for 260 years by their love of a job well done and their love for others.
The unique and authentic style of Lanson Champagnes rests on four immutable pillars: a meticulous selection of Crus; a vinification according to the traditional Champagne principle; a rare collection of reserve wines, and a longer aging in cellars.
Herv Dantan, Lanson Winemaker, carefully crafts elegant wines, that are characterized by an inimitable freshness, fruitiness and vitality.
Lanson Champagnes bring people together. They are made to be gifted and shared with our cherished ones. The Lanson Cross, carefully marked on each bottle, is timelessly emblematic of this philosophy."-Winery Notes
LansonView all from Lanson
The House of Lanson has always blended its champagnes using a majority of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in order to achieve the perfect balance of power and finesse.
Our supply from over 500 hectares of vines in the wine-growing region of Champagne offers a wealth of choice and enables Lanson to select the best grapes from the best plots.
The freshness and energy that are key to the Lanson style are closely linked to the House's historic commitment to using a traditional wine-making method, without malolactic fermentation. Lanson emphasises the fruit and the richness of aromas in a search for purity in its wines.
Wines from different plots are vinified separately. Through numerous tasting sessions they are assessed and classed according to their aromatic family. Blending is the art of creating a wine that is superior to the sum of its parts.
The palette of flavors, and the talent of Winemaker Hervé Dantan, come together to create the perfect balance of fruitiness, elegance and freshness.
The richness of the grape varieties and Crus is complemented by the richness of different years. Adding reserve wines helps to amplify the quality of young wines.
Non-vintage cuvées are therefore composed of reserve wines and more than 10 different years of harvests, and are left to age in the Cellar for at least three years.
The vintage Cuvées take this time to mature and continue to develop their extraordinary aromas. Lanson wines journey through time perfectly.
