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
16.5/20 Jancis Robinson
"Strong wild salmon colour. Tinges of red. Tight lemon-laced raspberry fruit. Quite stony and ungiving when first opened, but a week later the wine had, surprisingly, opened and the fruit was richer and deeper, without losing that mouthwatering cool-wet-stone framework that makes it so different from many strawberry confections on the champagne shelves."
