The House of Forneaux, as Taittinger's predecessor was called, originated in 1734 and was one of the first Champagne houses. Pierre-Charles Taittinger acquired the house in 1932 and the splendid La Marquetterie chateau in 1934. Pierre-Emmanual Taittinger is now responsible for running the company which holds 228 hectares of vineyard including holdings in six grand cru in the Côte des Blancs.
