Notes from the Winemaker:
The House of Lanson makes the difficult choice to declare vintages only in years that can truly be considered exceptional. 1904,1928,1955,1971,1976,1983 and 1990 are great Vintages that have gradually built the reputation of Champagne Lanson. Nowadays, Lanson is particularly famous for its collection of Vintage Champagnes.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"This has seen more than six years of ageing in the cellar and has attractive concentration and nicely played complexity. The nose is as fresh as you'd expect from Lanson with all yellow grapefruit and lemon but some pastry too. The palate, meanwhile, has a refreshing sweep of acid-driven, lemon fruit and is super pure, fresh and long. A great-value wine here. Drink now till 2015." - (October 7, 2016)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Notes of oyster shell, graphite and spice are a fresh and aromatic entry for this vibrant Champagne, layered with firm, focusing acidity and flavors of poached apricot, black cherry, lemon curd and slivered almond. Offers a lovely, creamy texture and a juicy quality to the mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2033." — A.N. (Oct. 2, 2019)

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"In all probability the finest rendition of this cuvée since 1996, Lanson's 2008 Brut Vintage Gold Label is an impressive wine in the making, unwinding in the glass with aromas of white flowers, lemon oil, orange rind, apple and freshly baked sourdough. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with a concentrated but tight-knit profile that exemplifies the house's non-malo style, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. It's a terrific value in the world of seriously age-worthy Champagne." - William Kelley (Aug 2019)

92 Points - Decanter:
"It’s thanks to wines like this, that the 2008 vintage has attracted such attention. True to the traditional Lanson style, developed over 250 years, Champagne Lanson Gold Label 2008 is light, elegant and vibrant, but also long, persistent and full. The blend is 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay all of which is sourced from Grand Cru vineyards. Crystallised white fruit, honey and nougat lead on the nose and palate, with brioche and cream to the fore on the finish. Pinpoint balance and extremely more-ish. Drinking Window 2016 - 2026"

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Lanson’s 2008 Millésime Gold Label is bright and finely cut, with a good bit of energy running through the citrus and floral-infused flavors. Even so, the 2008 is a relatively open wine for the year that looks like it will offer its best drinking sooner rather than later." - Antonio Galloni (Jul 2018)
