Taittinger Prelude Grands Crus NV, France
Creamy citrus nose. Toast. Creamy long toasty finish.
Winner: Gold Medal


Pale, brilliant yellow in colour with silvery highlights, the bubbles are fine and form a lasting and delicately creamy ring of mousse. The nose is subtle and fresh, the initial mineral aromas quickly develop into green, floral scents with hints of elderflower and spicy cinnamon overtones. On the palate, its flavours are dominated by intensive fresh citrus fruit. These then give way to a much fuller, well-bodied and mellow taste with flavours reminiscent of white peaches in syrup. The finish is long, rich and extremely expressive.
