Founded by the noble family behind Champagne Taittinger, Claude Taittinger's search for a worthy U.S. counterpart began in the late 1970s. In 1987 he selected a 138-acre parcel in the heart of Carneros, Napa Valley. The team created the quintessential California expression of the Taittinger style in Carneros.
This Rose, made from the majority Pinot Noir balanced with Chardonnay, is expressive and fruity and can hold up to a meal as well as to a celebratory toast.
