About this Item

Art Collection, 1978
1 (1 x 1) 750ml
Taittinger dates back to 1734 when the first owner worked with Benedictine monks to learn how to produce sparkling wine. It was only later, in 1932, that Pierre Taittinger acquired the estate and relaunched it under his family name. Taittinger is one of Champagne’s largest producers and is part of the Union des Maisons de Champagne, a syndicate of Champagne houses that includes the likes of Bollinger, Laurent Perrier, Moët & Chandon, and Louis Roederer. Taittinger owns four kilometers of chalk caves (originally dug out by the Romans) and is only one of five Champagne houses who uses them for cellaring.
