Champagne Taittinger Prélude - Taittinger

Taittinger Prélude is a very interesting Champagne. Produced by the famous house in Reims from a careful selection of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, sourced from villages classified as Grand Cru and with a 5-year aging period in the cellar. A Champagne of great balance, the equal blending of the two grape varieties simultaneously ensures the vibrant minerality of Chardonnay and the aromatic intensity of Pinot Noir. In addition, despite its long bottle aging, Prélude retains a remarkable freshness and the perfect mix of refinement and complexity. In the glass, it is a beautiful pale yellow color with silver accents. The effervescence is delicate and elegant, resulting in a creamy and persistent perlage. The nose is subtle and fresh, with an initial mineral hint that quickly turns herbaceous, amid elderflower and spicy notes. In the mouth, it is sharp and vibrant, dominated by citrus notes. Then it becomes round and silky, revealing notes of white peach syrup. The finish is long, rich and explosive. Prélude is perfect as an aperitif but also proves a perfect accompaniment for classic seafood dishes. Try it with a tasty fry of small fish or with a poor fish grill.

The Taittinger brand does not have a 100-year history. But despite this, it is now considered one of the most famous and important Maisons in all of Champagne. It came into being in 1932 with its acquisition by Pierre Taittinger, an enthusiast of gastronomy and bubbly, who became aware of the estate while serving the French army as a first cavalry officer during the Great War. Today the Maison is run by the third generation of the Taittinger family, with Pierre-Emmanuel and his sons Clovis and Vitalie. La Maison is located near the city of Reims, on the ruins of the Saint-Nicaise de Reims Abbey. Among the Maison's special features are undoubtedly the historic underground cellars, built from gypsum quarries from the Gallo-Roman era. Here the wines have time to mature slowly in contact with their own yeasts. 288 hectares of total property, divided into 34 different crus where Chardonnay is the most significant variety, entering the blend of its most iconic label, the prized Comtes de Champagne. The judgment of experts is unanimous. With a label line that includes several limited editions, vintages and reserves, Maison Taittinger rightfully enters the elite of great Champagnes!
