    One of France’s great Champagne houses with a history dating back to 1734. So you could imagine the nationwide horror when in 2005 Taittinger was bought by an American firm – sacre bleu!

    Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, grandson of the original founder, was having none of that. He rustled up the cash (and a fair bit of it, he needed the help of French bank Crédit Agricole!), bought back his family’s business and sent the Yanks packing.

    Taittinger prefer to blend a little bit more Chardonnay into the mix than most, giving it real elegance and finesse. You’ll find this gorgeous, classy Champagne sitting on some shelves for $100 or more, making our festive season price even more jaw dropping.
