The champagne house "Lanson Pére & Fils" in Reims was founded in 1760 by François Delamotte. In 1798, his son Nicolas-Louis Delamotte took the lead and introduced the Maltese Cross as a company emblem. Together with Jean-Baptiste Lanson, he converted the winery into a company that was later named "Lanson et Cie". In the second half of the 19th century, Lanson was appointed official purveyor to the royal family of England, Sweden and Spain. The company has been owned by a consortium led by Marne et Champagne since 1991. The champagne are produced with a high proportion of Pinot Noir (around 50%) and Chardonnay. The Cuvée de Prestige is called "Noble Cuvée" with a higher percentage of Chardonnay (70%). The company's own vineyards cover 210 hectares, a third of which comes from production. Almost five million bottles of champagne are produced each year.
