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.

Description Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2009.

The vintage "Comtes de Champagne Rosé" represents the quintessential expertise of the house Taittinger, this Champagne the most prestigious of the Taittinger range, is made only when all the optimal conditions are met.

Made from Chardonnay grape variety wines (30%) from the classified Grands Crus vineyards and from the 5 villages of the Côte des blancs of the Avize villages, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger and Pinot Noir grape variety (70%) from the Montagne de Reims including 12% Pinot Noir from Bouzy vinified into red.

The wines of the 2009 vintage exclusively are bottled to be taken down to deep cellars (called Crayères) located under the Saint-Nicaise church built in the 13th century on the heights of Reims at a depth of 18 meters for a prolonged ageing of over 12 years.

La robe is salmon pink with amber highlights.

The nose offers a lively and rich bouquet of notes of small red fruits like raspberry, Plougastel strawberry or burlat cherry supported by floral notes like hawthorn, lime, jasmine and orange blossom.

The palate is silky, crisp and precise with a palate revealing great freshnessTouches of citrus like Menton lemon or Florida pink grapefruit finishing on a warm madeleine brioche. The finish is resinous fine with sensations of spice and Coal juniper.

Dining/wine pairing : It pairs ideally with shellfish, such as Brittany blue lobster, over fish such as turbot or monkfish caviar flavored with coriander.

Bottles to be stored in a cellar away from light and noise with a humidity level of about 70%.

Serve around 8 to 10 °C but not less in order to appreciate its fine flavors and delicate fragrances.

We suggest, in order to let it perfect over time, successive tastings to measure its olfactory and gustatory evolution until its peak of quality.
