The Top 50 best champagnes list, in the Revue du Vin de France, is a list which recognises only the premium Champagne houses in the world. And when you consider that Taittinger champagne were given the accolade of 24th on this much revered and extensive list, you begin to get an impression of how loved and reputed the House has become over the course of its long and distinguished history.
With 270 hectares of prize vineyard to their name, it's also instantly clear that Taittinger are not a Champagne company who have been born solely to seek riches. Instead, the company operate a production process that is the by-product of a lifelong passion for this magnificent drink. Heritage is vital to this House, and at the forefront of their diverse list of Champagnes is The Counts of Champagne Cuvée – a top-class vintage that is made solely from white Chardonnay grapes that come from the famous Côte des Blancs region. Classified as 100% excellence, this drink is fabulous, but equally none of the drinks available from Taittinger let down, or prove to be of substandard quality.
Chardonnay is very much champagne Taittinger thing, so if you're a lover you're sure to find your calling in anything from the Brut Champagne to their Demi-Sec Champagne variety. Also on offer is their Blanc de Blancs Vintage as well as their Rosé varieties – namely the Rose Champagne or Champagne Pink Vintage...and the list goes on.
