The high proportion of Chardonnay (40 %), allows the Brut Réserve to reach its full aromatic potential after maturing for 3 to 4 years in the cellars. It is unusual for a non-vintage blend to have such a high quantity of Chardonnay, and this is what makes this non-vintage blend so balanced, consistent and world-renowned. It is an excellent champagne, suitable for any occasion.

Taittinger is a renowned Champagne house that has been producing exceptional sparkling wines for over 250 years. Situated in the heart of the Champagne region in France, Taittinger has established itself as one of the most prestigious and respected producers in the industry.

The history of Taittinger dates back to 1734 when the family first started cultivating vineyards in the region. Over the years, they have perfected their winemaking techniques and have become synonymous with elegance, finesse, and quality. Today, Taittinger is still owned and managed by the Taittinger family, ensuring that their traditions and expertise are passed down through generations.

One of the key factors that sets Taittinger apart is their commitment to using only the finest grapes. They have extensive vineyard holdings in the Champagne region, including some of the most prestigious Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards. This allows them to have complete control over the quality of their grapes and ensures that only the best fruit is used in their wines.

Taittinger follows the traditional method of Champagne production, also known as the méthode champenoise. This labor-intensive process involves a secondary fermentation in the bottle, which creates the characteristic bubbles and complexity of Champagne. The wines are aged for a minimum of three years, allowing them to develop their unique flavors and aromas.

The style of Taittinger Champagnes is often described as elegant, refined, and balanced. They are known for their delicate bubbles, creamy texture, and vibrant acidity. Taittinger produces a range of different cuvées, each with its own distinct character and style.

The Taittinger Brut Reserve is their flagship Champagne and showcases the house style at its best. It is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, sourced from over 35 different vineyards. The wine is aged for a minimum of three years, resulting in a complex and well-rounded Champagne.

On the nose, the Taittinger Brut Reserve offers enticing aromas of fresh apples, citrus fruits, and brioche. The palate is crisp and lively, with flavors of ripe pear, lemon zest, and toasted almonds. The fine bubbles dance on the tongue, creating a luxurious and indulgent mouthfeel. The finish is long and refreshing, leaving a lingering impression of elegance and

Taittinger is one of the most famous Champagne brands in the world, and one of the largest wineries in the Champagne region. Founded in 1932 by Pierre Taittinger, the estate is located in Riems with vineyards covering approximately 290 hectares distributed across the Champagne appellation.

Pierre Taittinger, an officer and prominent politician in 1915, didn’t foresee a life in winemaking, but after being assigned to the chief of staff based at Château de la Marquetterie, Pierre Taittinger fell in love. He decided to buy the property and its surroundings from the wine house Forest-Fourneaux and start a family legacy.

François Taittinger, Pierre’s son, took over the family business in 1945 and forged the signature style of the house. He was responsible for making Chardonnay their flagship grape because he was convinced of the potential that this variety would have among the consumers in the 20th century. After his untimely death in 1960, his bother Claude started managing the company until 2005, when was sold to a private investment firm. The new ownership didn’t seem compatible with Taittinger’s standards of quality and it’s for this reason that the Taittinger Family decided to buy back ownership in 2006.

Taittinger’s aim has always been the pursuit of excellence, as Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger, current Honary Chairman, sates:

“Having our family name on a bottle places demands and responsibilities on every minute. The name on the bottle conveys both the skills and knowledge of the past and a commitment to the future”.

In 1668, Dom Pérignon is said to have discovered how to make sparkling wine; today his technique is used the world over, although Champagne continues to make some of the finest. France’s most northerly wine region, Champagne is now home to 15,000 growers and 290 ‘houses’. A blend of grape varieties is usually required: white Chardonnay to add fruit and elegance, and two reds – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – to provide body and backbone.
