A sophisticated Champagne, whose quality rests upon Taittinger’s skill to select the region’s finest grapes, using mostly their own vineyards which gives greater control and consistent quality. The delicate Taittinger style is enhanced by using just the first pressings and basing the cuvee on 40% Chardonnay, on average twice the percentage found in most standard cuvees. Three years ageing on the lees brings a complexity and roundness to the wine, making it dry, light and elegant with a fine mousse, fresh citrus fruit and subtle, weightier notes of peach and brioche; Taittinger Brut Réserve characterises the Taittinger house style.
Champagne Taittinger’s origins date back to 1734 with the founding of the original House by Jacques Fourneaux. The Taittinger link was established in 1931 when Pierre Taittinger acquired the House. Pierre had spent much time in the Champagne region when serving in the 1st World War. He was stationed at the Château de la Marquetterie, fell in love with the remarkable property and its vineyards and eventually purchased the company. Today, the Reims based House remains owned and actively managed by the family.
