"A blend of Grands Crus, half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay".

- +

The excellence of the Champagne Taittinger House (called Prelude) based on the origin of its Grands cru wines exclusively half Pinot Noir and half Chardonnay, but also on the first press. A Champagne of a great floral expression, coupled with minerality.

Young, it is outstanding in flavours but kept longer, it becomes more complex with an elegant deepness.

Perfect as an aperitif and with seafood, combining finesse, freshness and complexity in its aromatic expression.

In 1734, Jacques Fourneaux established a wine-business in Champagne and worked closely with the Benedictine Abbeys which, at that time, owned the finest vineyards in the region.

Jacques Fourneaux starts this activity in Reims, by trading still red or white Champagne wines, then sparkling wines from those wonderful vineyards.

In champagne’s history, he was the third to get into wine trading. The Fourneaux associate with Antoine Forest in the 1820s. Soon, the new company flourishes under the name Forest-Fourneaux.

For a while, it settles in the Vergeur hotel in Reims, before transferring the activity after the first world war on Tambour street, in the 13th century house of the Counts of Champagne.

In 1932, Pierre Taittinger bought the Château de la Marquetterie from the wine house of Forest-Fourneaux. From 1945 to 1960, the House was managed by François Taittinger with help from his two brothers Jean and Claude. It was at that time that the House settled in the Saint-Nicaise abbey’s cellars, built in the 13th century on roman chalk quarries from the 4th century. In 1960, Claude Taittinger managed and gave a great drive to the House.

After difficult times inside the group the restructure the stocks in the years 2005-2006, it was Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, a third generation who took over, with help from his two children Clovis and Vitalie, a fourth generation to write the future.

Taittinger’s vineyard spreads on around 300 hectares for a production amounting to 6 million bottles.
