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 Read more »

  • Alan, read some P.G. Wodehouse or Agatha Christie novels to get a better feel for the drinking habits of Londoners from that time period. More gin than wine at that time I think. Sherry would probably be their wine of choice, and sweet not dry. As for Champagne, probably a Taittinger or a Bollinger, but most likely some brand that doesn't exist ... Read More

  • Alan, you appear to be working on an interesting project, and you have posed an interesting question.Dmcker referenced "claret."  "Claret" is the term commonly used in England for red wines from the Bordeaux region of France, and, yes, they would have definitely been popular in the 1930s..The "Classified Growth" description refers to a "ranking"...

It’s not diffic... Read More
