Mass selection

Despite trends, 50 years ago Taittinger made the choice of mass selection for 90% of its vineyard. Where a clonal selection parcel comprises a dozen different plants that reproduce identically, a mass selection parcel comprises hundreds.
The method showcases the know-how and expertise of our team that selects the finest possible vines. This process more natural and random than clonal selection is one of our convictions; a prerequisite to guaranteeing the complexity and personality of each of Taittinger’s wines and to preserve the genetic patrimony of our region.
