The history of the Taittinger Champagne House began in the early 20th century. Ran by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger and his two children, Clovis and Vitalie, the Taittinger House has managed to preserve its family spirit by producing champagnes that are resolutely Chardonnay in style. Since January 1st 2020, Vitalie Taittinger is the President of the Taittinger Champagne House.
The vineyards owned by the Taittinger Champagne House spread across 288 hectares of vines and include 37 different crus. This makes Taittinger the third largest vineyard in Champagne. The entire vineyard bears a High Environmental Value certificate.
Vinification and ageing
Taittinger's Brut Réserve has been aged for a minimum of 3 years in the cellar to perfect its aromas, before being released onto the market.
Taittinge's Brut Réserve is a Champagne that comprises 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, stemming from more than 35 different crus and spread over several harvests.
Brut Réserve by Taittinger has a brilliant golden straw colour, with fine bubbles and a discreet and persistent foam.
The nose reveals fruity and brioche aromas. Fragrances of peach and white flower emerge, blending with notes of vanilla pod.
Harmonious in the mouth, the wine is delicate, revealing delicious notes of honey and fruit.
