Taittinger

Background

Taittinger oversees approximately 640 hectares of premium quality vineyards, and employs all its skill and experience in blending first pressings of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The hallmark of the Taittinger Champagnes is the high percentage of Chardonnay used in their winemaking which can ranges from 40% in the Brut Réserve Non Vintage to 100% in the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs. This Chardonnay dominance produces an elegant and creamy style which has proven very popular with the modern Champagne drinker and places this Taittinger amongst the very best in the world.

Historically, Taittinger remains one of the few Champagne houses owned and actively managed by the family named on the label. Its origins date back to 1734 when the original house was founded by Jacques Fourneaux. The Taittinger link was established in 1931 when Pierre Taittinger, the founder of today's company acquired the House. Pierre had spent much time in the Champagne region when serving in the 1st world war as a young cavalry officer. Stationed at the Château de la Marquetterie, he fell in love with this remarkable property and its vineyards and eventually purchased the company. Today, the Reims-based house is headed up by Pierre's grandson, Pierre-Emmanual Taittinger alongside his son and daughter Clovis and Vitalie. All are actively involved in the day to day running of this thriving family business.
