Champagne Taittinger is one of the few remaining family owned and operated Champagne houses. The firm is distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims regions. Unlike most large houses, Champagne Taittinger relies primarily on estate grapes for its portfolio of Champagnes. Also unique are the higher proportion of Chardonnay in its wines that gives Taittinger its signature style, and the time devoted to aging the wines before release—most often greatly exceeding the legal requirement, in a practice that also has become a Taittinger hallmark. Distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards. Highest-quality production: exceeding minimum aging for all cuvées, high percentage of estate grapes, sustainable practices. Uses a higher proportion of Chardonnay grapes in its blends than other large houses—Taittinger’s unique personality. Critical acclaim: consistently outstanding (90+) scores, worldwide recognition among connoisseurs Read less

IWC Silver Medal A wine of great charm, combining the power of Body and the intelligence of Spirit. Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found among the great champagnes. This gives this great white champagne a sparkle which is lighter, yet fruitier than many others Grapes : Chardonnay 30%, Pinot Noir 50% and 20% Pinot Meunier Region : France / Champagne Maker : Pierre Taittinger Notes : The colou r is brilliant, golden straw y ellow. The bubbles are fine. The mousse is both discreet and persistent. Very expressive and open, is both fruity and bready. It exudes aromas of peach, white flowers (may blossom, acacia and vanilla pod). On the palate, this lively fresh wine is at once in harmony. Taste : This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey. In all a wine blessed with well-developed aromatic potential. It is aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity. Serve : It can be drunk as an aperitif or with food, preferably with an evening meal. It is a perfect accompaniment to white meat, lamb with chanterelles, crayfish and mushroom quiche. Profile A wine of great charm, combining the power of Body and the intelligence of Spirit. ABV : 12%
