Champagne Note 90

The Structure

Discover the structure of this Champagne


Harmonious balance between the various components of acidity.


Supple, easy-drinking champagne, the acidity doesn't clash with the palate.


Generous champagne with great intensity.

Long on the palate

Champagne aromas linger on the palate.


Bright, pale yellow with silver highlights. The bubbles are fine and form a persistent cordon de mousse.

The nose is fine and fresh. The first aromas are mineral and quickly become vegetal, then floral, with scents of elderflowers mixed with spicy touches of cinnamon.

The attack on the palate is lively and frank, dominated by very fresh citrus notes. It then becomes much fuller, round and silky, accompanied by flavors of white peach in syrup. The finish is long, rich and explosive. Prélude " Grands Crus" is a wine that combines finesse and complexity.
