Taittinger remains one of the few Champagne Houses to remain owned and actively managed by the family named on the label.
Taittinger owns 288 hectares of vineyards in the best localities of Champagne making it the second largest domaine owner in the region. The most famous of these are the vineyards surrounding Château de la Marquetterie and parcels in the prestigious Côte des Blancs.
Their winemaking approach produces a Champagne style of elegance, delicacy and finesse which is recognised worldwide and has earned the House many accolades and awards over the years. Taittinger’s home is situated above miles of chalk tunnels and cellars. These 4th century UNESCO listed cellars once belonged to the Benedictine monks of the abbey of St Nicaise and are perfect for the slow ageing process required for great Champagne.
Taittinger is under the “authorisation préfectorale”, a French government local representation, which requires it to follow certain environmental procedures. Examples include: industrial waste classed and weighed in by different type, card, wood, glass, plastic, aluminium and taken to recycling plants. Taittinger is also undertaking a number of steps to respect official environmental regulations on water and waste as well as implementing a plan to reduce their environmental impact concerning energy usage, water and waste.
