A yellow hue with golden tints and fine, persistent bubbles. Generous and intense on the nose, with notes of candied fruit, dried apricots and almonds, punctuated by aromas of acacia honey and sweet spices. The identity of the 2012 Vintage is revealed on the palate. Density, texture and freshness come together in wonderful harmony. The texture feels generous, offering notes of honey, brioche and dried fruits. The freshness extends and blends delicately into a long and refined finish.
Maison Lanson owns a wonderful and unique collection of vintages, offering a balanced blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It has made the demanding choice to only declare vintage the years considered exceptional. 1874, 1904, 1928, 1955, 1964, 1971, 1976, 1985, 1999, 2008 and 2012 are all great vintages, demonstrating the capacity of our wines to transcend time while retaining an incomparable freshness.
Despite significant climatic contrasts, 2012 was a miraculous year that produced one of the greatest vintages over the past few decades. The succession of unpredictable weather events, which saw a tough winter with hard frosts combined with a spring where rain alternated with hail, fortunately gave way to fine weather in August. The exceptionally sunny summer enabled the grapes to ripen slowly and perfectly until the harvests mid-September. The relatively modest yields of the 2012 harvest gave concentrated wines.

With a history dating back to 1760 Champagne Lanson is the third oldest house in Champagne and was awarded the Royal Warrant in 1860 by Queen Victoria. Champagne is a historic province in the northeast of France, best known for the production of the sparkling white wine that bears the region's name. Lanson is among the few producers to prevent malolactic fermentation, keeping their wines crisp and refreshing. The wine then has extended ageing in the historical wine cellars to mature and soften.
"Le Vintage 2012, great vintage of the House, is characterised by its aromatic intensity and complexity. The wine is the result of a unique year full of contrasts, revealing an exceptional sense of harmony. " - Hervé Dantan, Winemaker
