Taittinger Cuvée Prestige Brut is a blend of around fifty different vineyards, consisting of Chardonnays (40%) and Pinots (60%) from various vintages matured to perfection.

Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found in fine non-vintage champagne. This was a gold medal winner in the 2017 Champagne Masters and got 92/100 from Wine Spectator.

Taittinger considers it an honour to produce a Brut champagne every year without exception. Taittinger Cuvée Prestige is unique for its crisp bouquet and balanced aromas. Its finesse, vigour and exuberance on the palate make it the perfect champagne for any occasion.

The brilliant body is golden yellow in colour. The bubbles are fine, while the foam is discreet yet lingering. The nose, very open and expressive, delivers aromas of fruit and brioche. It also gives off the fragrance of peach, white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and vanilla pod.

The entry onto the palate is lively, fresh and in total harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey. Brut Prestige is aged in the cellar for four years to reach perfect maturity and develop excellent aromatic potential.
