The champagne house based in Reims was founded in 1734 by the champagne dealer Jacques Fourneaux and is therefore after Ruinart the second oldest. The cellars of the former Saint-Nicaise abbey date from the 13th century. The company was bought in 1931 by Pierre-Charles Taittinger (Austrian origin) together with his brother-in-law. He enlarged the property through extensive purchases. From 1942 to 1960 François Taittinger, after his death Claude Taittinger (* 1927), led the company. In 2005, two-thirds of the entire company, which in addition to champagne production also included several hotels (including the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris), were sold to the US company Starwood due to inheritance disputes. Just a year later, however, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger (Claude Taittinger's nephew) bought back the champagne production with the help of a bank consortium by a staggering 660 million euros, not least due to his emotional attachment to the company. He has been the managing director since 2006. Virginie Taittinger, daughter of Claude Taittinger, is also in management.

The company's own vineyards cover 280 hectares of vineyards with the classic champagne varieties Pinot Noir (around half), Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier are. Contract winemakers from the majority of the Côte des Blancs buy around as many grapes again. Chardonnay-emphasized champagne is produced, the most popular brands are Brut Réserve, Brut Prestige Rosé and Prélude. The Cuvée de Prestige is called "Comtes de Champagne Blanc", of which there is also a rosé version. In June 2013, Taittinger presented its official champagne for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. In total, about 4.5 million bottles are produced annually champagne generated, more than half of it is exported. Around 15 million bottles are stored or matured in the cellars. The estate includes the Domaine Carneros winery in California, where sparkling wines (the Cuvée de Prestige is called "Vintage Blanc de Blancs") and still wines are also produced.
