Champagne Taittinger Prelude Grands Crus NV

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.

Vineyard
The blend is made soley from fruit grown in Grand Cru
classified vineyards. 50% Chardonnay grapes from the Côte
des Blancs (including Avize and Le Mesnil sur Oger) and 50%
Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims area (including
Mailly, Ambonnay). There are 17 named Grands Crus in
Champagne covering approximately 9% of the vineyard's
total surface. A selection of these are used in Prélude each
bringing precise characters to the wine for example
minerality, structure, fruitness.
Winemaking
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.
