Taittinger Demi Sec
The commitment to a name. The Taittinger family has managed the Champagne House for nearly a century. Its aim has always been the pursuit of excellence. “Having our family name on a bottle places demands and responsibilities on every minute. The name on the bottle conveys both the skills and knowledge of the past and a commitment to the future”. Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger has embodied this commitment for 40 years, and today he shares it with his son, Clovis and his daughter, Vitalie who both work beside him in the day to day running of the Champagne House. Together, they create a very close-knit and complementary family trio.
The Taittinger vineyard has become increased in size down the generations and now covers 288 hectares, making it the third largest domaine in Champagne. Futhermore, the Champagne House has the biggest intramuros vineyard of the city of Reims situated in Val-de-Murigny near the first Roman road connecting Reims to Epernay. It is planted with 37% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier vines distributed equally across 37 different crus which are amongst the best in the Champagne appellation. The vineyard is a perfect reflection of the Taittinger style. It provides 45% of what the Champagne House needs, and is a great asset when it comes to controlling the quality of blends within the framework of responsible viticulture practices which have been awarded a high environmental quality accreditation.

This Champagne has a pale golden yellow colour. The bubbles are fine and the mousse is abundant and persistent.The nose is suggestive of delicate hints of honey and ripe fruit, with overtones of greengages and elderflowers.The first impression on the palate is lively, acidulated and soft, with citrus (mandarin) predominant, backed by peaches in syrup and dried figs.It has an end which is extraordinarily soft and notably full and long-lasting.All in all, a rounded, sweet and mellow wine of great charm and sensuality.
Wine - Food pairing
All in all, a rounded, sweet and mellow wine of great charm and sensuality. Taittinger Demi Sec is a gourmet wine. Its sweetness and mellowness, combined with the dosage, make it an ideal accompaniment to most desserts, including chocolate cake, strawberry charlotte and warm madeleines.
