A Powerful and Fresh Champagne with notes of Dried Berries and Brioche

The producer

A family-owned and operated Champagne House, Taisne Riocour Champagne pays hommage to the owner's parents Angelito de Taisne and Claude de Riocour, who first revived the family vineyard, which were founded in 1837. Today, the House is owned and run by their son Charles and his family. The champagnes of the House offer a timeless expression of the French art de vivre, along with a certain elegance, audacity and charm.

The vineyard

The Taisne Riocour Champagne vineyard comprises 20 hectares in Riceys, Champagne's largest AOC area, and home to three different appellations: Champagne, Rosé des Riceys, Coteaux Champenois. The land is divided into eighteen parcels, each with its own unique microterroir. The vines (mostly Pinot Noir) are aged 30 years on average. Since 2016, the entirety of the Taisne Riocour vineyard has been certified High Environmental Value, and recognized for its environmentally-friendly and biodynamic practices.

The Maison Taisne Riocour Grand Reserve is made with Pinot Noir from the estate's Tronchois vineyard and Chardonnay from the Val-Germain and Saint Roch plots.

The vinification and aging

The cuvées of the Taisne Riocour Champagne House are elaborated in the estate's own winery, which was inaugurated in 2012.

The Maison Taisne Riocour Grand Reserve champagne is made with 15% reserve wine and aged for 3 years in the estate's traditional cellar. It is dosed with 6.5 grams of sugar per liter. This champagne is produced in a limited edition of only 4,000 bottles per year.

The blend

65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay

The tasting


This champagne displays an intense golden yellow color in the glass.


The nose of this champagne reveals juicy white peach and fresh apricot aromas, followed by touches of graphite, exotic white flowers, frangipane, ripe mango and panettone.


On the palate, this champagne is quite generous but with a tonic, lively quality that lifts it. Flavors of orange zest, apricot and peach are complemented by light oaky touches and notes of brioche on a texture that is slender and fine.

Food and wine pairing

The Maison Taisne Riocour Grande Reserve will pair nicely with a lobster salad or roasted sea bass, but will also stand up to a juicy pork belly cooked with chicory and raisins.
