Always 5 Star guide to Taittinger Champagne

When you think of champagne, one of the many top names that will come to mind is Taittinger Champagne. It is one of the many established houses in the famed Champagne region of France. Jacques Fourneaux founded Taittinger in 1734 and for nearly two centuries, it was known as Forest-Fourneaux. It became the House of Taittinger in 1932.

One of the many reasons I find Taittinger Champagne to be an excellent choice for any occasion, is that the taste is sophisticated and delightful. With golden hues and refined bubbles, it provides a sensation of citrus, vanilla and peach fruits that assist with extending the finish. An elegant and chic dry Champagne with a delicate essence. The entry onto the palate is tingly, fresh and is in total harmony.

A soaking tub in a luxury hotel suite will always pair well with a glass of Taittinger! Cheers!

Five things you might not know about Taittinger Champagne:

๐ŸŒŸ When the house was first started they worked closely with local Benedictine monks to learn how to produce still and sparkling wines.

Easy to spot the Taittinger at the Vino Volo! Love the tasting notes that they display next to the bottles.

๐ŸŒŸ Taittingerโ€™s headquarters was once the home of royalty. Theobald IV, who reigned over Champagne in 1222, lived in the palace.

At the Shangri-La Toronto โ€“ Bosk restaurant where we ordered a bottle to share with special friends.

๐ŸŒŸ Taittinger is one of only five Champagne houses to have utilized chalk caves originally dug out by the Romans to cellar its wines in the famous โ€œCrayรจresโ€ of Reims. The caves provided the perfect condition for aging their wine. They were rediscovered at the beginning of the 18th century.

Taittinger is a wonderful introduction to any dining experience!

๐ŸŒŸ Taittinger was the official Champagne at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

๐ŸŒŸ Since I am a huge James Bond fan, it was fun to learn that his favorite Champagne was Taittinger. The champagne is featured in the movie โ€œFrom Russia with Loveโ€ with Sean Connery.

What better way to enjoy a sunset than with a glass of Taittinger!

Domaine Canaeros Napa Valley and Taittinger Champagne:

In 1987, Claude Taittinger purchased a 138-acre parcel in the heart of Carneros, Napa Valley in California. His team created the ideal California expression of the Taittinger style in Carneros. It is now a beautiful and popular chateau winery called Domaine Caneros. The sparkling wines produced here are special and are certainly worthy of the Taittinger legacy of creating sparkling wine. The sparkling wine is a costs savings as well, compared to the price of the champagne.
