Champagne Taittinger was founded by Pierre Taittinger after he visited the Champagne region as a liaison officer during World War One and fell in love with the place. The house was sold but bought back by Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger in 2006, so once again family owned.
Champagne Taittinger grow about 50% of the grapes they need for their cuvees, the rest being bought from local growers and co-operatives with whom they have had long relationships.
Taittinger Prestige Rosé immediately stands out for its intense, shimmering hue whose secret lies in the fact that it is a blend, which is more complex and costly to produce.
A quantity of still red wine produced from the best Pinot Noirs from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys is in fact added to the final blend, to give this cuvée its unmistakable colour and vibrant intensity on the palate.
The high proportion of Chardonnay that completes the blend brings the elegance and delicacy that underpin Taittinger’s signature style.
Grapes – 45% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay & 25% Pinot Meunier.
Suitable for Vegans.
