Originally known as Forest-Fourneaux with history dating back to 1734 and in 1932 Pierre Taittinger bought the House and the Taittinger label was born. A century of incredible growth saw Taittinger become one of the biggest producers and today is one of the last big independent, family-owned Houses. Pierre-Emmanuel retired in 2019 and was succeeded as President by his daughter Vitalie. They own 288-hectares of vineyards and the Taittinger style is the high percentage of Chardonnay

bundles of fruit with grapefruit, pear and apple in abundance. The palate is crisp and fresh with those citrus notes and you start to see the tropical fruit like pineapple from the Chardonnay shining through with good lees character adding to the texture on the palate. Bright and clean on the finish leaving you ready for a second sip.
