Description

Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne is the flagship wine of this historic Champagne house.

Champagne Taittinger can trace its origins back to the original house founded in 1734 by Jacques Fourneaux. However its links to the Taittinger family started in 1931 when it was purchased by the founder of today’s company; Pierre Taittinger. Today it remains owned and managed by the Taittinger family and is headed up by Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger.  Pierre Emmanuel’s son, Clovis Taittinger and daughter, Vitalie Taittinger both work in the business making it very much a family affair. The Taittinger headquarters are in Reims, situated above magnificent 4th Century Roman cellars which at one time belonged to the Benedictine monks of the abbey of St Nicaise. Its miles of tunnels and cellars are perfect for the slow but necessary ageing process involved in making this great Champagne.

Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne is only produced when all the conditions, essential to its unique style, are met : the harvest must be of exceptional quality and worthy of vintage champagne and it is made exclusively from 100% Chardonnay grapes from the most renowned vineyards of the Côte des Blancs. Only wines from the first pressing (La Cuvée) are used. This guarantees the wine’s finesse. 5% of the wines used in the blend are aged in new oak barrels (one third of which are replaced every year), thus enhancing the intrinsic qualities of the final blend. Dosage is 9 g/L.
