Located in Reims, France and one of the few remaining family-owned Houses, the House Taittinger was established in 1808, making it the third oldest House in Champagne. 288 hectares of estate-owned vineyards supply half of their fruit mostly in the Cotes des Blancs and Montagne de Reims. More fruit is sourced from growers including Avize, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Chouilly, Cramant, and Vertus. Their tête de cuvée, Compte de Champagne, is consistently listed as one of the best Champagnes of the vintage. Chardonnay is always the main component used in the blends, creating that original, defining characteristic of elegance and aromatic complexity that is the defining character of the House of Taittinger.
