Winemaker Notes

A yellow straw color with glints of gold, a reminder of the Pinot Noir in the blend. Aromas of ripe fruit are enriched with notes of leather, hot stone and flint. Smooth, full and complex; the honey-smooth finish adds to the overall harmony.

Lanson Gold Label 2002 is perfect when served with creamed fish, white meat or a matured Comté cheese.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Balanced and delicious, this is rich, full in the mouth, packed with both white and citrus fruits and with secondary flavors of almonds, toast and baked bread. It is poised generously between the fresh and mature, making it very ready to drink now.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A finely meshed Champagne, with a creamy mousse and citrusy acidity framing the flavors of pastry dough, baked cherry, chopped almond and singed orange peel. The lingering finish is richly smoky. Disgorged October 2012. Drink now through 2027.

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.

Hervé 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.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
