It all began with Pierre Taittinger, who in 1932 purchased a Chateau in the Champagne region. From there he purchased a second property, Maison Forest Fourneaux which is one of the oldest Champagne houses in association with his brother-in-law, and so began the adventure of the Taittinger name. After a century of being passed down the Taittinger family decided to sell the business to the Northeastern Regional Bank of the Crédit Agricole. Today, the brand decided to expand its vines to other regions of the world, by recently purchasing land in the UK with the intent of producing for the first time an English sparkling wine.
The House’s flagship Champagnes are currently the Comtes de Champagne, and Comtes de Champagne Rosé.
