Taittinger

It was in 1734 that Jacques Fourneaux created a Maison de Commerce de vin de Champagne as he was working with the great Benedictine abbeys who then owned the finest Champagne vineyards.

Jacques Fourneaux started this business in Reims, selling still Champagne red and white wines, followed by sparkling wines from these magnificent vineyards.

He is the third in the history of Champagne to start trading. The Fourneaux joined forces with Antoine Forest in the 1820s. The new business soon prospered under the name Forest-Fourneaux.

For a time, the company occupied the Hôtel le Vergeur in "Reims", before transferring, after the First World War, its business to rue de Tambour in the 13th-century home of the Comtes de Champagne.

In 1932, Pierre Taittinger acquired Château de la Marquetterie near Epernay from the Maison de Champagne Forest-Fourneaux. From 1945 to 1960, the company was managed by François Taittinger, assisted by his two brothers Jean and Claude, and it was during this period that the company moved into the cellars of the Saint-Nicaise abbey, built in the 13th century on Gallo-Roman chalk pits dating back to the 4th century. Then, in 1960, Claude Taittinger took over the helm and gave the company a considerable boost.
