- +

The cuvée"Comtes de Champagne" represents the quintessence of the know-how of the Taittinger house, this most prestigious champagne of the Taittinger range, is only elaborated when all the optimal conditions are met.

It is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes from the 5 villages of the Côte des Blancs in the villages of Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger.

The wines of the 2012 vintage exclusively are bottled to be brought down into deep cellars (called Crayères) located under the Saint-Nicaise church built in the 13th century on the heights of Reims at a depth of 18 meters for a prolonged aging of 8 to 10 years.

The color is bright straw yellow.

The nose reveals greedy notes of gingerbread, licorice and meringue, sublimated by aromas of white flesh fruits such as vine peach or mandarin peel.

The mouth is smooth but lively with a supple and fleshy sensation, with some touches of citrus fruits such as Florida grapefruit and candied fruits such as Ente plum or Alsace mirabelle plum

The finish is fine and long with a spicy touch of licorice and vanilla.

In perfect harmony with seafood, shellfish or sea fish grilled on the barbecue or in sauce.

Bottles to be kept in a cellar away from light and noise with a hygrometric degree of about 70%.

We suggest, in order to let it perfect itself over time, successive tastings to measure its olfactory and gustatory evolution until its peak of quality.

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.
