Champagne Taittinger was established in 1931 by Pierre Taittinger on the foundations of Forest-Forneaux, itself established in 1734 and the third-oldest wine producing house of Champagne. Taittinger is today proprietor of approximately 600 acres of vines among which are included parcels in the one hundred - percent rated villages of Cramant and Avize in the Cote des Blancs; and Bouzy, Mailly, Ambonnay and Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The Taittinger Estate is one of the three most extensive in the Champagne district, and the firm's major holdings in Chardonnay vineyards are the physical expression of the Taittinger philosophy and style.
The excellence of the wines in Champagne is due largely to its soils. The deep chalky subsoils, covered by a layer of siliceous clay belong to a Jurassic formation named after the village of Kimmeridge in Dorset. Taittinger owns 642 acres of vineyards in the best localities of Champagne. The most famous of these are the vineyards surrounding Château de la Marquetterie.
Taittinger is aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity.&n..
