From the Winery:

The balance between freshness and aromatic strength is what makes this champagne such a harmonious blend. The cuvee comes together through the careful selection of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Grands Crus, taken from just the first pressing, and a maturation period of 5 years in the cellars. With its blend of 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it is the ideal prelude to a unique moment of pleasure and celebration.

Prélude “Grands Crus” is a cuvée that makes an excellent
aperitif or accompaniment to classic seafood dishes.

Prélude Grands Crus Cuvée is composed of Chardonnay

(50%) and Pinot Noir (50%) that Taittinger has selected

exclusively from the top Grands Crus vineyards classified as

“100%” in the Champagne system. Produced only using first

press wines, this rare blend offers the finesse and structure

that a great wine needs if it to be laid down for any length of

time. On the palate, this wine strikes the perfect balance of the

instantly minerally Chardonnay and the strongly expressive

Pinot Noir. Aged for more than five years in the cellar, the

Prélude cuvée is unique for its remarkable youth and great

wealth of flavours

The brilliant body is pale yellow with silver highlights, a sign
of the high proportion of exceptional Chardonnays.The

bubbles are fine and form a persistent and delicately creamy

ring of foam.The wine is subtle and fresh on the nose. The

initial mineral aromas quickly give way to green and then

floral notes with the fragrance of elderflowers and spicy

cinnamon undertones.The entry onto the palate is clean

and lively, dominated by very exceedingly fresh citrus notes.

These segue into much fuller, rounder and silkier flavours

where white peaches in syrup predominate.The finish is rich,

lingering and bursting with flavour. Prélude «Grands Crus»

is a joyous blend of finesse and complexity. its balance of

freshness and aromatic expression is outstanding.
