Pierre Taittinger

A young cavalry officer during the First World War, Pierre-Charles Taittinger joined the staff of Marshall Joffre in 1915 at the Château de la Marquetterie. Captivated by the estate, he vowed to one day return and to make it his family's château - but it would not be before 1932 that he would realize his dream. He became partners with his brother-in-law, Paul Evêque, and bought the house Forest-Fourneaux, as well as the Residence of the Counts of Champagne in Reims. His love and his vision of great French gastronomy will shape the style of the wines of the House.
