Taittinger Prélude Champagne

A Grands Crus Champagne comes exclusively from vineyards in the 100% category of Champagne classification system. It is made entirely from cuvée (first pressing).


The blend comprises 50% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs (Avize, Le Mesnil sur Oger) and 50% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims area (Bouzy, Ambonnay), thus obtaining the finesse and structure which a great champagne requires if it is to be laid down for any length of time.

Cellar ageing on its lees has enabled the fine, delicate aromas of this wine to open up and develop.

TASTING

The colour is brilliant, pale yellow with silvery highlights, evidence of the high proportion of Chardonnay. The bubbles are fine and form a lasting and delicately creamy ring of mousse.


The nose is subtle and fresh. The initial mineral aromas quickly develop into green, floral scents with hints of elderflower and spicy cinnamon overtones.

On the palate, its flavours are dominated by intensive fresh citrus fruit. These then give way to a much fuller, well-bodied and mellow taste with flavours reminiscent of white peaches in syrup.

The finish is long, rich and extremely expressive.

To conclude, Taittinger Prélude Grands Crus is a joyous blend of finesse and complexity, striking a perfect balance between freshness and aromatic expression.
