THE TAITTINGER CHAMPAGNES
In 1932, Pierre Taittinger bought the Domaine and the Château de la Marquetterie, formerly Maison Forest-Fourneaux. As early as 1734, the aforementioned Maison had been working with the Benedictine abbeys, which had the most beautiful vineyards in Champagne. With the arrival of Pierre Taittinger, a new chapter began, as he restored the House to its former glory.
In 2007, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger took over as head of the House, with excellence as his main ambition: “Having our family name written on a bottle brings with it responsibility and a demand for constant high standards. Our signature encompasses the know-how of the past and a commitment to tomorrow. “ Today, it is Vitalie Taittinger, his daughter, who drives this vision as President of the House since January 2020.
The Taittinger vineyard has grown steadily, today spanning 288 hectares. Planted with 37% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir, and 15% Pinot Meunier, distributed among 37 different crus, which are some of the best under the Champagne appellation. It is the 2nd largest estate in Champagne and one of the most certified, with accreditation for High Environmental Value and Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne.
THE TAITTINGER SIGNATURE
The elegant, sophisticated, swirling style of the House is reflected in each of the cuvees. It is instilled into us by the constant search for natural beauty and simplicity. Seeking out this unique taste, marking those small happy instants or life’s big moments: this is the philosophy that lies in the scripture of Taittinger champagnes.
