Overview

Tasting Note:
This wine comes from four grand cru sites and is made from the first pressing, with 25% of the blend originating from réserve stocks. Prior to release it is aged for a minimum of four years on the lees. The flavours are dominated by intense fresh citrus fruit, then a much fuller, but mellower taste reminiscent of white peaches in syrup, with lovely aromas of brioche on the finish.

Food Pairing:
White Fish, Hard Cheese, Soft Cheese

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. Since 1960 the house has been headed by Pierre’s son, Claude Taittinger, who is also the winemaker. The hallmark of the Taittinger blend is the high percentage of Chardonnay it contains – anything from 45% in the Brut Réserve Non Vintage to 100% in the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs.
