Cuvée de Prestige

Common name (also Prestige Cuvée or Cuvée Spéciale) for the top product of a Champagne house. Such a champagne comes from particularly large vintages and has usually been stored or matured on the yeast for many years. These brands are often up to five times more expensive than the standard products of the houses. Often creatively named, these champagnes were often created and/or named for a famous personality or specially created after a significant event. Well-known Cuvée de Prestiges from renowned Champagne companies are:

Cuvée de Prestige - Dom Perignon, Henriot, Krug, Perrier-Jouet, Ruinart

Products from a single and usually also exclusive vineyard are called mono-cuvée. A list of other Champagne houses can be found under the keyword Champagne.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
