The Taittinger headquarters are in Reims, situated above some magnificent 4th century Roman cellars which formerly belonged to the Benedictine monks of the abbey of St Nicaise. The vast expanse of tunnels and cellars are perfect for the slow but necessary ageing process involved in making this great Champagne. The origins of Champagne Taittinger date back to the original house founded in 1734 by Jacques Fourneaux. Its links to the Taittinger family however began in 1931, when it was purchased by the founder of today’s company; Pierre Taittinger. Around 1912, Pierre and one of his brothers-in-law ran a Champagne distribution and export business. As a young cavalry officer in the First World War, he spent a great deal of time in the Champagne area and after the war in 1932 decided to purchase the house. Since 1960 the house has been headed by Pierre’s son, Claude Taittinger, who is also the winemaker.
