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 »

  • There’s always a reason to celebrate or something to which you can look forward. It could be the re-release of your favorite Starbucks drink, catching up with an old friend, or even a three day weekend. But when you need something extra special about which to get ecstatic, there is Champagne and caviar. Caviar may be making a comeback, but did i... Read More

    Wine review by Dennis Lim

  • I was recently challenged to find a wine that would match a delicate dessert and continue to drink well into those lazy, mellow moments that follow every memorable meal. There were several contenders but I went for Demi-Sec Champagne. Controversial I know but most Houses produce Demi-Sec including Moet et Chandon, Taittinger, Veuve Clicquot, Lan... Read More

  • New Year’s Eve sparkling wine is arguably the most important wine selection you will make…for the rest of the year. But seriously folks, your New Year’s Eve sparkling wine toast is a crucial moment of reflection, resignation, and acceptance. It’s a moment when you take stock of all the decisions you’ve made over the last 365 days and salute them... Read More

  • Taittinger Champagne Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne 2006


    Lovely and elegant toasted coconut and almond notes with light perfectly integrated yeastiness and hints of peach and dried apricot. Zesty and floral on entry - this is perfectly elegant and refined while delivering an excellent dose of pure acidity and fresh fruit flavors of peach, pear and green apple. Towards the mid palate a pure minerality ... Read More

  • Taittinger Champagne Blend Champagne Comtes de Champagne Rosé Brut 2006


    Effortlessly elegant rose petal and strawberry aromas with a light brioche note. Warm and round notes of strawberry, ripe cherry and pink grapefruit blossom on the palate buoyed by small and sensual bubbles and a peak of acidity through the midpalate, sliding down towards the finish with creamy toast and more pleasant fruit notes feathering the ...

  • You learn something every day and last Saturday was no exception. Did you know that at a Christening the bottle of celebration Champagne should be bigger than the baby? That means of course that a single bottle that holds a mere 750 millilitres is no where near big enough. I have a confession to make; I always get confused when it comes to Champ... Read More

  • I wish I could wait that long, but as the others rightly say, if the storage was good and luck (cork integrity, etc.) was with you, you should enjoy the fruits of your long wait.  Personally, however, I would drink up...  if you are even remotely close to my venerable age.Z. Read More

  • That's going to change your whole perception of aging sparkling wine, Watchstop.  What's the story behind how it managed to hit 22 years with such good provenance?  Did a family member have a cellar and leave it/give it to you? Definitely won't be like a young wine, but will be amazing, most likely.

  • The flavor profile will have changed a bit compared to when it's younger, but I enjoy aged champagnes very much. Look for toasty flavors and let us know what else you discover as you drink it! Read More
