The Taittinger family has managed the Champagne House for nearly a century. Its aim has always been the pursuit of excellence. “Having our family name on a bottle places demands and responsibilities on every minute. The name on the bottle conveys both the skills and knowledge of the past and a commitment to the future”. Taittinger Nocturne is a sweeter champagne, made from 40% Chardonnay and 60 % Pinot Noir and Meunier from 35 vineyards. It is laid down for 4 years to age before being disgorged. A 17.5g/l dosage of sugar cane combined with the slow cellar ageing create a round and smooth champagne. It is the result of several harvests undertaken when the fruit had reached perfect maturity. The uniqueness of its mix and its long maturation period in the cellars gives it its fullness and smoothness. It works well as an accompaniment to dessert, or simply as a digestif on its own after a meal. The body is pale yellow in color with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate ring of fine foam. The subtle and delicate bouquet reveals the delightful aromas of yellow peaches and dried apricots.The entry is smooth and creamy, yet very crisp.The palate gives way to flavors of raisins and fruits in syrup.The long and smooth finish is distinctively sweet and full of flavor. A mature, rich and round wine, Nocturne is also exceptionally smooth and creamy.
