TAITTINGER

The much-lauded Taittinger began life as Champagne Fourneaux in 1734. The Fourneaux family were themselves no slouches, acting for a time as advisors to Veuve Clicquot.

During World War I, cavalry officer Pierre Taittinger spent time near Epernay. He subsequently returned to the region in 1932 to buy the Fourneaux holdings and founded the House of Taittinger, in the process buying up large swathes of valuable vineyard at a time when Depression-ravaged land prices were at rock-bottom.

Relinquishing control to international corporate interests in the mid-2000s, the family have subsequently managed to claw their way back into contention. Today, once again in French hands and headed up by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, the business is quartered in Reims, where they reside above their labyrinthine 4th-Century Roman cellars and remain one of the largest vineyard owners in the region.

TAKAPUNA WINE CLUB | CHAMPAGNE, THE PIONEERS AND THE VISIONARIES

In December we paid tribute to some of the wonderful women who contributed so much to making Champagne what it is today. The overwhelming response has inspired this follow up tasting to open Takapuna Wineclubs for the year. Our theme tonight will be of a rather more masculine bent, celebrating the lives and bubbly related deeds of some of Champagne's leading men. The lineup of course will be a special one to match, ranging from bone dry to slightly sweet, and the fizzy tours de force of such luminaries as Champagne Charlie, Michel Drappier, Louis Roederer and perhaps even touching upon a certain monk.
