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.

Since 1760, Lanson has remained family owned. Faithful to its heritage, Lanson Champagnes have always been made using the traditional method, offering an exceptional development of flavor while preserving the natural purity of the fruit. This historic commitment offers wines with a longer ageing potential, extremely fresh, crisp and elegant. A truly unique style.

Lanson was the first champagne house to be awarded the famous Royal Warrant as an official supplier to the Court of England in 1900, an honor which it holds to this day. 

Champagne Lanson is proud to be the official Champagne of Wimbledon since 1977


Champagne

View all wine

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France 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 chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and 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 one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
