Humility and tranquillity
The experience and passion of the winegrowers now gives way to the skills and talent of the Cellar Master in selecting, and then delicately combining, the potential of each vintage being used in the blends. Chardonnay is always the main component used in the blends, and creates that original, defining characteristic of the Taittinger Champagne House. It is this unique style, which has been present since the outset; the style that the tasting panel always scrupulously seek to maintain. But nothing is ever certain. “Our work is based on humility and tranquillity”, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger once said. Humility is required in the face of a living raw material which is the result of the work of both nature and man, with no guarantees about how it develops and what the result will be. Tranquillity is necessary for the patience and long hours required for the perfect maturation of the wine and before it sees the light of day.
