The hallmark of Champagne Taittinger is the high proportion of Chardonnay used in winemaking which is key for crafting wines of great elegance and finesse. From the non–vintage Brut Réserve to the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, Taittinger’s first and foremost priority has always been the quality of the wines it produces.
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. Prélude Grands Crus is a joyous blend of finesse and complexity. its balance of freshness and aromatic expression is outstanding.
