Founded in 1760 by François Delamotte, Lanson is one of the oldest and most highly esteemed Champagne houses. A blend of top vintages 2002, 2004 and 2005, expertly put together, it was awarded 91 points and described as “excellent” by Wine Advocate.
"A lovely, clear and fresh, intense and vinous bouquet. Very elegant and intense. Excellent"
Stephen Reinhardt Wine Advocate
For many Champagne aficionados, the House of Lanson produces the region’s most authentic fizz. Their house style is rich and powerful, and also fresh and energetic thanks to their traditional winemaking style. By choosing not to use malolactic fermentation, the house style emphasises the rich fruit character and intense aromatics. Fruit sourced from separate plots is vinified separately, giving winemaker Hervé Dantan an extensive palette of flavours from which he can produce the perfect assemblage. His Extra Age Brut takes wines from three highly regarded vintages – 2002, 2004 and 2005 – to capture the full power of the Pinot Noir and the crisp finesse of the Chardonnay from prime sites across the region. The perfect celebration sparkler.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
