When you think of champagne, one of the many top names that will come to mind is Taittinger Champagne. It is one of the many established houses in the famed Champagne region of France. Jacques Fourneaux founded Taittinger in 1734 and for nearly two centuries, it was known as Forest-Fourneaux. It became the House of Taittinger in 1932.
One of the many reasons I find Taittinger Champagne to be an excellent choice for any occasion, is that the taste is sophisticated and delightful. With golden hues and refined bubbles, it provides a sensation of citrus, vanilla and peach fruits that assist with extending the finish. An elegant and chic dry Champagne with a delicate essence. The entry onto the palate is tingly, fresh and is in total harmony.
Five things you might not know about Taittinger Champagne:
🌟When the house was first started they worked closely with local Benedictine monks to learn how to produce still and sparkling wines.
🌟Taittinger’s headquarters was once the home of royalty. Theobald IV, who reigned over Champagne in 1222, lived in the palace.
🌟Taittinger is one of only five Champagne houses to have utilized chalk caves originally dug out by the Romans to cellar its wines in the famous “Crayères” of Reims. The caves provided the perfect condition for aging their wine. They were rediscovered at the beginning of the 18th century.

Domaine Carneros Napa Valley and Taittinger Champagne:
In 1987, Claude Taittinger purchased a 138-acre parcel in the heart of Carneros, Napa Valley in California. His team created the ideal California expression of the Taittinger style in Carneros. It is now a beautiful and popular chateau winery called Domaine Carneros. The sparkling wines produced here are special and are certainly worthy of the Taittinger legacy of creating sparkling wine. The sparkling wine is a costs savings as well, compared to the price of the champagne.
When celebrating a special occasion, or just to celebrate life itself, Taittinger champagne will surely create that Always 5 Star 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Champagne moment for you! Cheers to your Taittinger moment!
