Taittinger produces a range of Champagnes from its signature cuvée to its top prestige cuvée and includes a selection of wines which each have a story to tell.
In Champagne there are three varieties of grapes grown. Pinot Noir is the more noble of the two black grapes and lends the wine bouquet, depth, full body and complexity; Pinot Meunier adds roundness and acidity. The white variety is Chardonnay, the most fragile and rarest of the three (28% of total plantings) and also most costly; it lends elegance, finesse and delicacy to the wine, lightening the fuller, richer, characteristics of the black grapes. For Taittinger, it is the Chardonnay grape that forms the foundation for the house style.
