Crisp, firm and elegant with a sharply focused beam of pear, spice, vanilla and ginger notes that are rich and concentrated. Finishes with a burst of flavor that stays with you on a long, full finish. (10/1993)
The Taittinger Collection Series was conceived in the late 1970s by Claude Taittinger. Long a patron of the arts, with a passionate interest in the modern schools of painting and sculpture, he perceived a natural alliance between the creation of the artist and the art of the great winemaker. Thus, in 1983, Champagne Taittinger introduced the first of its revolutionary Collection Series, uniting art and Champagne in the design of a special bottle with a laser-sealed sheath that visually expresses the artist’s concept of the magic of Champagne. Featuring the work of artists such as the French surrealist André Masson, American pop artist Robert Rauschenberg, and more recently the renowned Senegalese painter Amadou Sow, these exquisite bottles are commissioned well into the 21st century, and will perpetuate Champagne Taittinger’s affiliation with the greatest artists of our time.
Taittinger’s Collection series was originally released in 1983. The goal of this collection is to unite Champagne and art by commissioning artists to design special edition bottles. These highly-collectible Champagne were produced from a blend of Chardonnay grapes from the best vineyards in the Côte de Blancs and Pinot Noir harvested from the best vineyards on the Montagne de Reims
