A Family Affair
Champagne Taittinger has origins dating back to 1743 and remains one of the few top Houses to be owned, and actively run, by the family named on the label. The charismatic, Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger, grandson of the founder heads up the business on a day to day basis, supported by his daughter Vitalie and son Clovis.
Top quality control from vine to bottle
In addition, Taittinger are remarkable in that they own a significant number of vineyards and are the second largest vineyard owner in the region. This provides them with quality control from vine to bottle.
With many of their fine Champagnes being matured in their magnificent UNESCO status, 4th century Roman cellars, the hallmark of these wines is the high percentage of Chardonnay used, which gives them elegance, delicacy, finesse and great drinkability.
