Prélude Grands Crus

Perfect balance

The balance between freshness and aromatic strength is what makes this champagne such a harmonious blend. The cuvee comes together through the careful selection of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Grands Crus, taken from just the first pressing, and a maturation period of 5 years in the cellars. With its blend of 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it is the ideal prelude to a unique moment of pleasure and celebration.

Prélude Grands Crus


The Taittinger Prélude ‘Grands Crus’ cuvée is made from a blend of 50 % Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir, which Taittinger has selected only from the ‘Grands Crus’ vineyards; the highest rated vineyards in the Champagne region.

Only the first pressings are used, resulting in a perfect balance between the vibrant minerality of the Chardonnay and the strength and structure of the Pinot Noir. It matures for 5 years in the cellars, and retains a distinct freshness, combining sophistication and complexity. Its minerality opens up the nose, before quickly becoming botanical and blossoming out into a fragrance of elderflower mixed with spicy notes of cinnamon. The taste is vibrant and forthright, dominated by hints of fresh citrus fruit. It then evolves into a rounded and smooth tongue. The finish is long-lasting, rich and explosive. This cuvee reveals a superb balance between freshness and an aromatic character.
