Presentation of the vineyard
Pierre Taittinger discovered the perhaps less glamorous part of Champagne as a young soldier during World War 1914-18. He returned a few years later with his brother to start the now world famous Taittinger champagne, primarily known for the use of a large proportion of Chardonnay in the wines. The company is still family owned with Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger as a director.
A brilliant straw yellow color with golden hues, the bubbles are small and provide a persistent foam. An expressive fruity and toasty aroma, hints of mainly peach, white flowers and vanilla. The palate is fresh, harmonious with good acidity. Then turns into a fruity flavor with hints of honey. A quality champagne to serve both as an aperitif or with food.
