This commitment to tradition, combined with a spirit of innovation, has allowed Taittinger to create champagnes that embody the essence of luxury and sophistication. At the heart of Taittinger's success lies its meticulously cultivated vineyards. Spanning over 290 hectares, these vineyards are located in some of the finest terroirs of Champagne, including the renowned Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims. The unique combination of soil, climate and grape varieties results in grapes of exceptional quality, which form the foundation of Taittinger's exquisite champagnes. One of Taittinger's most celebrated champagnes is the Taittinger Brut Réserve. Crafted with a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, this champagne captivates the senses with its delicate bubbles, golden hue and a symphony of aromas ranging from fresh fruits to brioche. With its balanced and refined taste, the Taittinger Brut Réserve is a testament to the house's commitment to creating champagnes of exceptional quality. Beyond its flagship Brut Réserve, Taittinger offers a range of champagnes that cater to every occasion and preference.

Taittinger's commitment to quality extends beyond the production process. The house is also known for its commitment to sustainable practices, with an emphasis on preserving the environment and the biodiversity of the Champagne region. Taittinger's vineyards are farmed with utmost care, using sustainable methods that respect the land and the delicate ecosystem.
Taittinger Brut Réserve Champagne NV is a testament to the artistry and dedication of the Taittinger family. This exceptional champagne is crafted from a blend of Chardonnay (40%), Pinot Noir (35%) and Pinot Meunier (25%) wines, sourced from over 35 different vintages and vineyards that have matured to perfection. What sets Taittinger Brut Réserve apart is its unique composition, with a higher proportion of Chardonnay compared to other non-vintage champagnes. This delicate balance, combined with a minimum ageing of three years in the cellars, allows the champagne to reach its peak of aromatic maturity, resulting in a champagne of consistently excellent quality. The brilliant body of Taittinger Brut Réserve shines with a radiant golden yellow hue. The fine bubbles gracefully dance in the glass, while the discreet yet lingering foam adds to the champagne's allure. On the nose, the champagne unfolds with an open and expressive bouquet, delivering a harmonious blend of fruit and brioche aromas. Notes of peach, white flowers like hawthorn and acacia and a hint of vanilla pod add layers of complexity and fragrance. As the champagne meets the palate, it reveals a lively and fresh entry that is in perfect harmony. This delicate wine envelops the taste buds with flavors of fresh fruit and honey, offering a delightful and nuanced experience. Taittinger Brut Réserve continues to evolve and develop its aromatic potential during the three to four years of ageing in the cellar. This dedication to time and patience allows the champagne to develop its character and depth, resulting in a champagne that is truly exceptional.
