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

extended maturation in cellars. The LANSON Cross, which graces
each bottle, is its timeless symbol.

Champagne Chanoine Frères in Reims
Maison founded in 1730

Founded during the reign of Louis XV, CHANOINE FRÈRES was the first Maison to be authorized by the town of Épernay to dig a cellar in Champagne. The second oldest Champagne Maison, CHANOINE FRÈRES, now established in Reims, successfully blends modernity and tradition with its high-performance production facilities.

CHANOINE FRÈRES is continuing to develop thanks to growing recognition for the quality of its wines and its stronger listings across all distribution channels, and no longer just in mass retail markets. Export debuts are a future growth driver. In the “on premise” sector, the TSARINE Orium extra brut cuvee has received a highly promising response, alongside the brand new TSARINE Blanc de Blancs cuvee, which is a true eco-innovation.
