Taittinger Nocturne is a pale yellow in colour with delicate fine bubbles its nose is subtle, fresh and reminiscent of white blossom and ripe fruit, with overtones of yellow peaches and dried apricots. On the palate it is soft, fresh and mellow with delicate floral and ripe fruit flavours. The aftertaste is long and soft with a subtle sweetness. All in all it is rounded, rich and well balanced, smooth and creamy. Taittinger Nocturne is a Champagne to be enjoyed at the end of an evening. It is the perfect accompaniment to dessert or foie gras and will gladly have Champagne lovers celebrating all night long.

VINEYARDS: All of Taittinger’s vineyards are managed under the careful eye of Vincent Collard and Christelle Rinvelle, Champagne Taittinger’s highly regarded vineyard manager.

WINEMAKING: Taittinger Nocturne is a 'Sec' Champagne made from 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The finished blend includes over 30 'crus'.
