This Champagne House was originally established by Jacques Fourneaux, under his own name in 1743, making it the third oldest Champagne House. Jacques came from a family of important vineyard owners and was succeeded by his son Jerome who was the advisor to the young widowed Nicole-Barbe Clicquot. Jerome blended all the Veuve Clicquot wines between 1805 and 1810.

There is little to say about the formative years which were uneventful compared to the post-war period when it enjoyed great success. Having been purchased in 1932 by Pierre Taittinger, he went about changing the name to Taittinger Mailly & Cie. Pierre then started purchasing a great number of vineyards really cheaply as the economy was depressed and land was going for a song.

Pierre had spent much time in the Champagne region when serving in the First World War as a young cavalry officer. Stationed at the Château de la Marquetterie, he fell in love with this remarkable property whose name came from the history of cultivating alternating plots of black and white grapes. This was one of his most revered purchases.

Today, the Reims based House is headed up by Pierre's grandson, Pierre-Emmanual Taittinger and his son, Clovis and daughter Vitalie both of whom are actively involved in the day to day running of this thriving family Champagne House. Taittinger's home is situated above miles of chalk tunnels and cellars. These forth century Roman cellars once belonged to the Benedictine monks of the abbey of St Nicaise and are perfect for the slow ageing process required for great Champagne.

Owning some 288 hectares of vineyards in the best localities of Champagne makes it the second largest domaine owner in the region. The most famous of these are the vineyards surrounding Château de la Marquetterie and parcels in the prestigious Côte des Blancs. This ensures a regular supply of approximately 50 per cent of Taittinger's annual needs, significantly more than other well known Champagne houses. The remaining 50 per cent come from carefully selected growers, some of whose links go back four generations. As quality is of paramount importance, Taittinger only uses grapes from the finest vineyards in Champagne. Taittinger ranks in the top two major Champagne Houses in terms of self supply. The hallmark of the Taittinger Champagnes is the high percentage of Chardonnay used in their winemaking which can be anything from 40 per cent in the Brut Réserve Non Vintage to 100 per cent in the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs. This Chardonnay dominance provides for a style of elegance, delicacy and finesse which is recognised worldwide and has earned the House many accolades and awards over the years.

All the Chardonnay grapes used in the Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs come from the 100 per cent rated vineyards of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Oger and Mesnil-Sur-Oger in the Côte des Blancs. The vineyards are managed under the careful eye of Vincent Collard, Champagne Taittinger's highly regarded vineyard manager. All the wines are made under the watchful eye of Taittinger's long standing 'Chef des Caves' Loïc Dupont.
