La Marquetterie, a castle on a hillside, next to the vineyard, was, before the French Revolution, house of the writer Jacques Cazotte, author of Le Diable Amoureux. General of Castelnau made it his headquarters during the Champagne battle of 1915.

This Champagne originates solely from the “La Marquetterie” vineyard, the original champagne plot of the Taittinger family, located in the town of Pierry and classified Premier Cru.

It is composed of vines planted on this Premier Cru vineyard, in the Pinot Noir variety for 55% and Chardonnay for 45%.

Only the first presses were selected and vinification took place in oak barrels. 

The colour is a sustained gold with golden brown reflects.

The nose is intense and fruity, and discloses fragrances of vine peach, and stewed apricot, followed by notes of grilled brioche and vanilla.

Taste: wide, fruity with a dominant of yellow peach. The finish is complex and rich, enhanced by wooden notes.

This Champagne will ideally pair a meal with robust dishes like roasted meats of fishes in sauce.

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.
