Taittinger Nocturne is a ‘sec’ Champagne composed of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. A blend of around 30 different crus from several harvests, this wine is aged for at least 4 years before being disgorged. Cane sugar combined with the low cellar-ageing creates a round, mellow, smooth Champagne that is perfect to enjoy late in the evening. Taittinger Nocturne is pale yellow in colour with shimmering highlights with the bubbles forming a delicate ring of fine foam. The subtle and delicate bouquet reveals the delightful aromas of white flowers and ripe fruits of dried apricots and yellow peaches. Smooth and velvety on the palate, Taittinger Nocturne is crisp, giving way to flavours of raisins and fruits in syrup. The long and smooth finish is distinctively sweet and full of flavour. A mature, rich and round wine, Taittinger Nocturne is also exceptionally smooth and creamy. Bottle Size: 1.5L 12% ABV Grape Variety: 40% Chardonnay, 60% Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier Blend Fine Champagne from Reims, France
Taittinger is one of the few family-owned independent Champagne houses in Reims. It produces a very classy Non-Vintage blend and complex Vintage Champagnes as well. Its top Champagne is Comtes De Champagne - first produced in 1952, it is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes from 6 Grand Cru sites in the Côte de Blancs. This is finely aromatic, rich, creamy Blanc de Blancs at its best, though patience is required as the wine should not be approached for at least ten years.
