Each cuvée from Taittinger has its own personality, and cuvée Prélude Grands Crus makes no exception. It is elaborated from 50% Pinot Noir and 50% chardonnay, Maison Taittinger selecting the grapes exclusively from Grands Crus 100% classified.
This champagne has been created by Claude Taittinger in the 90’s, in the aim of the transition to year 2000. It is now fully integrated to the regular champagne range from Maison Taittinger, even if it is not produced every year.
The Chardonnay is immediately visible to the eye, thanks to its beautiful and shiny pale yellow color, with silver reflections. Bubbles and the nose are both of an extreme fineness. The nose is fresh, mineral and evolves towards vegetal and floral notes, and elderflower fragrances blended with spicy touches (cinnamon).
The palate is energetic, and dominated by very fresh citrus notes. It becomes then more ample, round ans silky, and develops white peach flavors, brioche and citrus peel. The final is long, rich and explosive.
Just as a prelude is the beginning of a music, this vintage has been created for the beginning of the meal, highlighting seafood. Lovers of generous champagnes will love it!
Every bottle of champagne Grand Cru from Taittinger is presented in a beautiful and free gift box.
