Vintage Vogue: Champagne Taittinger featured at the Boca Bacchanal March 18-20th!

It's no secret I am a fan of Champagne. So needless to say when I heard Champagne Taittinger would once again be featured at this year's Boca Bacchanal I was, how do you say, a very happy girl! As if having the wines of this famed Champagne House weren't enough, Clovis Taittinger, son of Champagne Taittinger President, Pierre-Emmanuel, will also be attending to represent his family's fabulous sparklers!

Champagne Taittinger was established in Reims, France in 1734 and is currently one of the three most extensive estates in the Champagne district. Its history is linked to Thibaud IV, last Count of Champagne, who owned the Abbey of Saint-Nicaise. After a crusade, he brought back a plant vine, supposed to be the ancestor of Chardonnay. In tribute to the Counts of Champagne, the prestigious cuvée of Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" was created in 1952. This Blanc de Blancs (made solely from Chardonnay grapes) vintage is made only from the Côte des Blancs and aged in cellars for many years. There is even the emblem of Thibaud IV on bottles of this wine. The history of the Taittingers has been linked to Champagne ever since.

Clovis Taittinger & moi
This iconic Champagne house also produces The Taittinger Collection introduced in 1983. The series united art and champagne in a series of very special bottles designed by world renowed artists including Vasarely, Lichtenstein and Rauschenberg, to name a few. These exquisite bottles continue to be produced in great vintage years, and perpetuate Champagne Taittinger's long standing association with the arts as patrons and benefactors.

For more information on this storied Champagne House, you can visit the Champagne Taittinger website OR you could attend next Saturday's fabulous Bacchanal and Auction and sip some Taittinger with an actual Taittinger! Guests at the event will also be able to purchase a chance to have their entire table relocated to a gorgeous and regally appointed "Champagne Table" where you will dine with Clovis Taittinger himself. This is a first for the Boca Bacchanal and a very unique opportunity. I guarantee this option will be alot more fun than visiting their website!

For more information, please visit www.bocabacchanal.com and please let me know if you are planning on attending the event - I hope to see you there!

Cheers,
