Founded in 1760 by magistrate François Delamotte, Champagne Lanson is a purveyor of champagne to the British Royal Family, which displays the coat of arms of Elizabeth II on its bottles. The estate does not own vineyards; they purchase grapes from 110 communes and produce approximately 1,300,000 bottles annually.
The company is well known for the educational and informational quality of their tours. You will learn about the entire process and see the actual processing plant used in the production of their wines and champagnes. Although they don't grow their own grapes for their production, they have a small vineyard right on their property in town that you can tour. Your tour concludes with a tasting of three champagne varieties and a visit to the storehouse where you can purchase products that you enjoyed from your tasting. Tours by appointment.

Booked the 1 hour tour. Guide was super friendly. Enjoyed the experience and the champagne. Not as impressive as some of the large champagne houses but still excellent! 7km of cellar. Also, it's the only place with a vineyard in the city.
Didn’t seem to be as popular as some of the other houses but it’s just as interesting. We took an English tour which turned out to be private because nobody else signed up. Very fun to see the industrial production followed by a walk through the caves. There’s natural mould on the walls! We enjoyed a tasting after the tour. You can choose to taste 1-3 champagnes. Nice experience.
