Taittinger is one of my favorite houses. Wonderful champagnes, fantastic history and a beautiful family! The house of Forneaux, as Taittinger’s predecessor was called, was among the first Champagne houses when founded in 1734.
The company’s financial upturn came when the Taittinger family bought it in 1936. Pierre Taittinger purchased a palace called La Marquetterie and built up an impressive arsenal of vineyards. Claude Taittinger, took over in 1960 and Pierre-Emanuel and his son Clovis Taittinger and stylish doughter Vitalie are following the same quality path.
