Location: Reims, Champagne, France
Champagne Taittinger became an idea when Pierre Taittinger first discovered the Champagne region during his time as a young liaison officer during the First World War. It was thanks to his passion for wine and gastronomy that he returned several years later and, with his brother-in-law, invested all his energy into the development of his Champagne business. Thanks to his audacity and innovative style, Champagne Taittinger has grown since its beginning in the early 1930s and taken its place among the great Champagne Houses.
Today, Taittinger's 288-hectare vineyard spans 34 different crus. Three varieties of grapes are grown on the property: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The vineyard reflects the unique style of the wines of the House, in which Chardonnay plays a paramount role. The lineup of Champagnes currently offered at Taittinger includes a Prestige Rose, a Brut La Francaise and a Comtes de Champagne.
