Taitinger has always been one of my favourite Grande Marques. A very elegant and complex style.
At Noble Grape we source our Champagnes like any of our wines - we seek out quality, value, and authenticity of style. We favour Growers Champagnes, but we are not strict about that. We do stock a few of the big names, but those that are family owned and fit our ethos of quality over branding and lifestyle.
The highlights from our range include Pierre Gimonnet which is a grower based in Cuis in the Cotes de Blancs, where Chardonnay is king. Gimonnet makes a style of wine that is as close to 'dry' as possible for a Brut, with elegance and purity. René Geoffroy is another grower we favour whose vineyards in Cumieres tend to prefer Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
