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.

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