Champagne Taittinger is very much the Champagne for the independently minded making it the perfect partner to the British Independent Film Awards. It remains the only top Champagne house to be owned and actively run by the family named on the label. As Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger, grandson of the founder says 'The family aspect is crucial. It is a philosophy, and a guarantee. We sign all our bottles – a great responsibility'. He and his family are fiercely passionate about their independence and are avid supporters of the arts and culture.
Taittinger's champagnes are matured in its own 4th Century UNESCO status cellars and the hallmark of these wines is the high percentage of Chardonnay used, which ultimately gives them delicacy and finesse making them the perfect celebratory toast.
At this year’s awards we will celebrate success with Taittinger Nocturne. With its touch of sweetness, this elegant, soft Champagne is perfect to enjoy late into the evening… the After Dark Champagne.taittinger.com
