About this house
The Taittinger family, at the helm of the House for almost a century, is constantly striving for excellence: "Having our family name on a bottle imposes a responsibility and a demand on us at every moment. This signature bears both the know-how of the past and a commitment to the future", as Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger likes to say.
A commitment he shares today with his son Clovis and daughter Vitalie.
Between Champagne and its dish
This champagne is best enjoyed as an aperitif, where its fresh, gourmet notes will help open the meal. Undeniably the perfect champagne for any occasion.
This champagne goes well with grilled or roasted meat starters, as well as fish in sauce. For example, roast beef with herb sauce on a bed of sucrine.
This "terroir" wine is an ideal accompaniment to robust dishes such as roast meats and fish in sauce, like a blanquette with two fishes and mussels.
A finalist in the "meilleur ouvrier de France" competition, Amandine Chaignot also entered a prize that few women have attempted: the Prix Culinaire International de cuisine d'auteur Taittinger, which she finished in second place. She opened her own restaurant, Pouliche, in Paris.
Amandine Chaignot recommends Taittinger Champagne with a Galette des Rois Poulaille et Champignons.
