Taittinger Prélude Grand Cru

The Champagne Taittinger Prélude Grands Crus is an assembly of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes proportions, select only the best vineyards Grands Crus of the denomination. The blend obtained from wine only from the first pressing, aged for five years on its lees. It is characterized by a pale yellow color and shiny with silver highlights, a delicately creamy foam and a very fine perlage. The nose offers a fresh, streamlined bouquet, with mineral aromas that make their way to green and floral notes, including clearly perceive elder flowers and cinnamon. In the mouth it is fine and complex, with an exceptional balance between freshness and aromatic expression. Excellent as an aperitif, it lends itself to accompany traditional dishes based on fish.

Taittinger Prelude Grand Crus

- The colour is a brilliant, pale yellow with silvery highlights, reflective of the high proportion of Chardonnay.
- The bubbles are fine and form a lasting and delicately creamy 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.
- Flavours are dominated by intense fresh citrus fruit which 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.
- This wine can be enjoyed as an aperitif but has the structure to match grilled fish and seafood.
- 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir.
- This wine comes from top Grand Cru sites and is made from the first pressing. The level of reserve wine used in the blend varies by vintage. Prior to release the wine is aged for a minimum of 4-5 years on lees, sometimes more.

Taittinger Prelude Grand Cru

Some friends from Champagne always bring it when visiting me.
A beautiful vivid colour. Yeasty and notes of bakery on the nose. I drank it several days after I had first opened the bottle and it still tasted good.

A Taittinger wine to enjoy among pleasant company.
I especially liked the colour. Delicious bakery aromas and notes of yeast. A rather dry sparkling.
Delicious wine, didn't care much for the food anymore.

Taittinger Brut Prelude

We bought the bottle in the wine shop close to home.
The had a very deep color. Good yeast aromas enhance a wine's bouquet. The palate ends up with a bitter taste.
