Taittinger Prelude Champagne

SKU #1025464

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw with a fine bead. Spicy, intense, deeply pungent aromas of apple, lime and flowers. Brisk, focused and pure, showing racy, deep citrus zest and mineral flavors of wonderful purity. Very clean, penetrating and long on the finish, with a lingering citrus zest quality." (Nov/Dec 06) 89 points Wine Spectator: "Smoky, graphite character lends depth to the lemon and floral notes in this elegant bubbly. Well-delineated by the vibrant acidity. Moderate finish. Drink now." (11/04) A blend from all Grand Cru villages.

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced.
