Both at home and abroad, Taittinger is one of the greatest names in Champagne. Two thirds of its production are exported to more than 140 countries where its Champagne is distributed.
Taittinger features on the wine-lists of the most prestigious restaurants in France and all over the world, and is sold in specialist luxury stores around the globe.
The origins of Champagne Taittinger date back to the original house founded in 1734 by Jacques Fourneaux. However its links to the Taittinger family started in 1931 when it was purchased by the founder of today's company; Pierre Taittinger. Today it remains one of the few top Champagne houses to be owned and actively managed by the family named on the label.
The Taittinger headquarters are in Reims where the Taittinger champagne is stored and matured in tunnels and cellars some 18 metres underground which form part of a 4th century monastery - perfect for the slow but necessary ageing process involved in making this great Champagne.
With 288 hectares in the best localities of the Champagne region, Taittinger is the second largest domaine owner in the region. Such vineyard ownership supplys them with 50% of their needs, the other 50% coming from long term contracts. This provides them with ultimate control over quality from vineyard to bottle.
This can be anything from 40% in the Brut Reserve NV to 100% in the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs. Such Chardonnay dominance gives the Taittinger wines a unique elegance, delicacy and finesse.
In the UK Taittinger has many elite associations including the Aston Martin Owner's Club, BAFTA - the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Christie's and Highclere Thoroughbred Racing but to name a few.
In Scotland Taittinger is acknowledged by Connoisseurs Scotland / Luxury Scotland as the finest of champagnes and the perfect complement to a fine dining experience.
