Taittinger Champagne is available at The Champagne Company and Taittinger's origins date back to 1734 by Jacques Fourneaux. Around 1912 Pierre Taittinger and one of his brothers-in-law ran a Champagne distribution and export business. As a young cavalry officer in the 1st World War, he spent much time in the Champagne area where he was stationed near Epernay. He fell in love with the vineyards and bought the property and its vineyards from Fourneaux in 1932.
Taittinger is family owned still and the Taittinger headquarters are in Reims, situated above magnificent 4th Century Roman cellars and run by Claude Taittinger Pierres son. The flagship wines of the house are the Comtes de Champagne (100% Chardonnay) and Comtes de Champagne Rosé (100% Pinot Noir) are frequently used at French State dinners.
HITTING THE HIGH NOTES
The wine has matured in the cellars for 5 years making it rounded, rich and explosive with evolving flavours and a certain sophistication that the Taittinger house is known for.
