The Maisons

Champagne Lanson in Reims
Maison founded in 1760

The prestigious LANSON is one of the oldest Champagne Maisons. When creating its wines, it highlights the fruit and its rich aromas in its quest for purity. The freshness and energy that are the hallmarks of LANSON's style give its wines unrivalled cellaring potential. With its longstanding international presence, LANSON has built up strong positions, particularly in the UK, where the Maison has held a Royal Warrant continuously since 1900, awarded by Queen Victoria. LANSON Champagnes are distributed across all channels (mass retail stores, wine stores, gourmet food stores, fine-dining restaurants, hotels).

The Maison’s long-term development is built around creating value through high-quality wines. The success of its latest release, “LANSON Green Label”, an organic cuvee and the first Viticulture Durable sustainable winegrowing vintage, is supporting its presence on segments with growing value, particularly on international markets. Alongside this, LANSON is moving forward with its major industrial modernization investment program and strengthening its commercial actions. The appointment of a new Chairman, François Van Aal, will enable it to consolidate its value strategy and its strong international reputation.




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 with tradition, with its modern, high-performance production facilities. CHANOINE FRÈRES Champagnes are present in the mass retail sector with the classic CHANOINE FRÈRES cuvees and the renowned Tsarine cuvee, which is also available through traditional channels.

CHANOINE FRÈRES is continuing to build on the Maison’s robust development. More specifically, its Tsarine cuvee is confirming its major potential thanks to the renowned quality of its wines and its growing number of listings across all distribution channels. Its bottle’s elegant curves, which give it outstanding visibility, particularly in the cinema, and its strong communication around its ambassador, Adriana Karembeu, are helping grow its reputation. The appointment of a new Chairman and CEO, Franck Coste, will enable CHANOINE FRÈRES to further strengthen its positions, both in France and for export.


Champagne Besserat de Bellefon in Epernay
Maison founded in 1843

Its bubbles, 30% finer than a traditional champagne, reflect a unique production process within the region. They give it the light effervescence that is the hallmark of BESSERAT DE BELLEFON Champagnes.

BESSERAT DE BELLEFON is carrying out work in line with the highest standards to create value through its outstanding wines. Its high-end positioning and realigned marketing platform will support the development of its sales in France and for export.
