Champagne Taittinger Prélude Grands Crus NV

Champagne, FrancePrélude Grands Crus Cuvée is a 50/50 mix of chardonnay/pinot noir that Taittinger selects from top Grands Crus vineyards. Produced with only first press juice, it has the finesse and structure to age effortlessly. On the palate, this is a fuller, more luxurious version of Taittinger, aged for 60+ months on lees and bottled with less than 10 grams of sugar at dosage. The attack is dense with creamy, buttery brioche dusted with toasted nuts, all held in check by Taittinger’s signature bead of acidity. Serious value. This is an excellent choice for decadent seafood dishes like lobster or smoked salmon.Tasted: 24 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
