What to expect


"Taittinger selects its grand cru parcels of elegance, finesse, delicacy and structure for its Prélude, reserving those with more power for the Comtes de Champagne Rosé. Prélude exudes a tightrope tension between power and precision; a particularly pale, bright straw hue and flavours of pear, grapefruit and fennel contrasting with the subtle bottle-developed complexity of almond meal and nougat."

Technical details:

50% Côte des Blancs chardonnay, mainly from Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, with a little Chouilly; 50% northern Montagne de Reims pinot noir for freshness, mainly from Mailly-Champagne, then Ambonnay and Verzenay; grand cru parcels selected to show the characters of their crus, rather than the mood of the vintage; 9g/L dosage
