40% Chardonnay, 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier
Champagne Taittinger are one of the few Grande Marque Houses that are still family owned and run. Presiding over this fabulous estate is Pierre-Emanuel Taittinger who is assisted by his children Clovis and Vitalie. With over 650 hectares of their own vineyards, Taittinger control much of their own production, with much of the vineyard being of Grand Cru classification. In the 1960s a prescient decision was made by Pierre-Emanuel’s great-uncle Francois to focus the House’s resources around Chardonnay and to pursue a vision of lightness and delicacy which has become a hallmark of the Taittinger style enjoyed today. The Taittinger cuvees also benefit from a longer aging process than is required under Champagne regulations delivering wines that have a subtle elegance with an underlying persistence of flavour and length that see the wines consistently score well in international tastings as well as with sommeliers from around the world.
What The Critics Say
17/20 Jancis Robinson
"Tasted blind. Delicate intriguing nose with real depth. Lots of palate impact and a nice tight bead. Serious wine that would be good with food as well as being a very positive aperitif in the rarefied atmosphere of an aircraft cabin."
92/100 Bob Campbell MW
"Lovely elegant champagne (style) with appealing delicate toasty flavours, an ethereal texture and good length. Dry with an exquisite balance of tangy acidity."
5 Stars Cuisine
"A delicate style with crisp citrus and ripe herbal aromas with flavours of brioche, honeysuckle, red fruits and clotted cream. Very well structured with a chalkiness that provides blalnce and persistance."
