Champagne Taittinger – Champagne with Tradition
Champagne Taittinger is one of the few great Champagne operations that is still family owned. That is due to the commitment of its current general manager Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger. After many years working alongside his uncle, Claude Taittinger, he is now assisted by his daughter Vitalie and son Clovis. Together they guarantee the exquisite quality and unmistakable style of Taittinger Champagne. 'We define ourselves as a Chardonnay operation,’ says Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger. ‘The wines are svelte, elegant, gracile.'
This gracile elegance began with Pierre Taittinger, who captured the spirit of the Roaring Twenties. In 1931, it was also he who purchased the winery in Reims, originally founded in 1734 by Jacques Fourneaux, and turned it into what is now the head operation of Taittinger. At the beginning of the 1950s, his sons Francois and Claude Taittinger produced the varietal Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, which can be deemed the essence of the unmistakable and still world famous Taittinger Champagne style: Finesse, lightness and elegance.
