Doubles partners for over 40 years: Wimbledon and Lanson

The 135th edition of the All England Lawn Tennis championships (affectionately known by all as Wimbledon) is currently on the go with the Men’s and Women’s Singles finals taking place this coming weekend. Order your Lanson champagne today to enjoy over the finals and take advantage of the limited edition gifting that we received from the House to mark 45 years of the champagne being served at this historic tennis championship.

Dear Reader,

The Wimbledon tennis championship and Lanson champagne go back a long way. Lanson has been the official champagne of Wimbledon since 2001 (but served even if unofficially since 1977). Champagne Lanson is one of just a handful of houses to hold a Royal Warrant (Lanson has supplied the Royal Court of England with champagne since 1900).

Today we shine the spotlight on three of Lanson’s ”Core Range” cuvées: Le Black Label Brut, Le White Label Sec and Le Rosé. The limited edition Wimbledon gift box and neoprene sleeves (both pictured below) are exclusively for the Le Black Label, complimentary with every bottle of Le Black Label purchased.
