Lanson’s vintage Champagne is legendary among those in the know, highly prized for its scintillating finesse and exceptional longevity.
The house’s track record is long and distinguished, and many Champagne connoisseurs fondly remember the Red Label, as Lanson’s vintage cuvée was known in the 1960s and 1970s, packaged in a unique and distinctive bottle shape known as the ‘quille’.

Vintage Collection: rare and iconic
There were five vintages released in this format—1964, 1966, 1969, 1971 and 1975 (there were some bottles of 1961 that were also transferred into the quille but that were originally made in regular bottles) – but after 1975, this was discontinued, partly due to unwanted connotations related to Johnnie Walker’s Red Label whisky.
