The Maisons



Champagne Lanson in Reims
Maison founded in 1760

Founded in 1760, LANSON is one of the oldest Champagne Maisons.
Building on its family heritage and unique know-how, the Maison’s
men and women have been guided by their love of a job well done
and their attention to others for 260 years. The unique and authentic
style of its Champagnes is built around four immutable pillars: its
meticulous Crus selection; its vinification in line with the original
principle of Champagne; its rare collection of reserve wines; and its
extended maturation in cellars. The LANSON Cross, which graces
each bottle, is its timeless symbol.

development around creating value through high-quality wines in
buoyant segments, particularly on international markets. To celebrate
its 260th anniversary, the Maison is refreshing its range and labels,
realigned around its founding values: attention and care, humility,
authenticity, openness and its wines’ characteristic elegance.

Maison LANSON relies on a family heritage and a unique know-how since its creation in 1760. Its history based on the love of a job well done and strong values of openness and authenticity guide men and women of the House in the quest for wine excellence. The unique style of our Champagnes is based on 4 immutable pillars: a meticulous selection of Crus; vinification according to the original principle of Champagne; a rare collection of reserve wines and prolonged maturation in cellars.
Affixed to each bottle, the Lanson Cross is its unalterable symbol.

Maison Lanson anchors its long-term development in the promotion of its wines on buoyant markets, particularly internationally, which today represents 85% of shipments.

To support this value strategy, the new prestige cuvée "Noble Champagne" was launched in 2022, on the 2004 vintage in Brut and Blanc de Blancs, with an autonomous territory of expression within Maison Lanson.

Finally, in line with its values, the House continues its commitment to sustainable development around a CSR vision at the heart of the company: "Terroirs, People, Wines".

Champagne Chanoine Frères in Reims
Maison founded in 1730

Created under the reign of Louis XV, CHANOINE FRERES was the first House to obtain authorization from the town of Epernay to dig a Champagne cellar. Second oldest Champagne House, CHANOINE FRERES, now based in Reims, combines modernism and tradition with an efficient production tool.

Maison CHANOINE FRERES obtained recognition for the quality of its wines in 2022 with more than 25 international awards received in various competitions in France and Europe.

TSARINE appeals to an increasingly large target of consumers, attracted by an exceptional bottle and increasingly appreciating the work of its cellar master Isabelle Tellier, one of the rare women so rewarded for the quality of her work.

His latest opus, the Tsarine Solium cuvée, made from premier crus and more than 3 years of aging in the cellar, has been well received since its launch.

The year 2022 was still difficult, as trade negotiations did not allow us to follow the trajectory of essential value creation given the rise in the price of grapes. A renewal of management is underway under the leadership of François Van Aal and a repositioning - in particular in terms of prices - should take place in 2023-24.

Champagne Besserat de Bellefon in Epernay
Maison founded in 1843

Since its creation in 1843, Maison Besserat de Bellefon, a true ambassador of the French Art of Living, has perpetuated a tradition of high quality, by producing wines reserved for the traditional sector of wine merchants and gourmet restaurants.

The art of vinification according to Besserat de Bellefon makes it possible to preserve the freshness and elegance of the fruit, a lively attack and a better expression of the aromas. A style resulting from a unique and singular production process that gives rise to bubbles 30% finer than those of a traditional champagne.

The year 2022 will have been marked by the rise of the Maison elected "Maison of the Year for its return to the forefront" at the Champenois Trophies. It will also have highlighted the incredible aging potential of its great wines with the launch of its “Réserve Collection” (1985-1986-1990-1992).

In 2023, we will celebrate 180 years of a rich history, where know-how, tradition and quality have brought the famous Cuvée des Moines to the finest tables in the world and we will strengthen our presence in France and internationally.
