Founded in 1734, Champagne Taittinger is one of the few giant champagne houses still controlled by members of the family that founded it. This is one of the most visitor-friendly of the large champagne houses.
Flagship wines of the house are the Comtes de Champagne composed of 100% Chardonnay and Comtes de Champagne Rosé comprised of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay.
You can visit the forth-century Gothic crayères (chalk mines) that are 17 m (55 ft) below ground and see the only vestiges left of the great 12th-century Saint-Nicaise Abbey. Your tour includes a film about the history of winemaking, a guided cellar tour, the champagne-making process, stories about Reims, and lore about the Taittinger family. The tour concludes with a tasting of one selection with an option to upgrade to more than one tasting. You can go to the visitor's center for a custom tasting.

First thing: BRING A JACKET. The caves are kept at a brisk 11 degrees Celsius. That said, the tour was very enjoyable and the right length. Very informative in terms of the Taittinger brand and champagne-making itself. Their cave is very impressive in terms of its architecture, history, and aesthetic.
We visited several champagne houses in the region. This one had the most interesting cellars. Tour prices are similar to other homes. It's about 12 degrees Celsius in the basement. I recommend taking something warmer
