FINESSE AND COMPLEXITY
- Colour : The brilliant body is pale yellow with silver highlights
- Nose : The wine is subtle and fresh on the nose. The initial mineral aromas quickly give way to green and then fl oral notes with the fragrance of elderfl owers and spicy cinnamon undertones.
- Mouth : The entry onto the palate is clean and lively, dominated by very exceedingly fresh citrus notes. These segue into much fuller, rounder and silkier fl avours where white peaches in syrup predominate. The fi nish is rich, lingering and bursting with flavour.
- Potential :
- Temperature :
- Glass : Shapely flute
- Paring with food : Prélude “Grands Crus” is a cuvée that makes an excellent aperitif or accompaniment to classic seafood dishes.

Shortly after the end of the Second World War, Pierre Taittinger with the help of his brother-in-law employed their passion for wine and French cuisine to found this beloved Champagne house. His creation quickly claimed its place among the greatest Champagne houses by forging its style based on the elegance of Chardonnay. Today, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger maintains the legacy of the family business and seeks to further develop its prestige with the help of his children, Vitalie and Clovis. Proud to be artisans of the Champagne trade, the winemakers at Taittinger pay particular attention to their vineyards throughout the entire year from the arrival of the shoots to the harvest. Several times during the year, more than 170 hectares are worked without the use of herbicides, a testament to the great respect shown by the Taittingers for their soil and plants. Each of these elements contributes to the subtlety and finesse of Taittinger Champagne. A Moment with Taittinger: "In my hands is the of light of the heart" - Vitalie Taittinger
