Histoire et anecdotes

In 1734, Jacques Fourneaux founded a Champagne wine company in order to work with the most beautiful vineyards which were holded by benedictine abbeys at the time. After World War I, the House was established in a private mansion which was before Counts of Champagne’s property. Then, in 1932, Pierre Taittinger became the owner of Forest-Fourneaux and Château de la Marquetterie which he discovered during World War I. At this time, the champagne adventure started. Nowadays, Vitalie Taittinger is running the estate.
