The colour is a bright, intense, flamboyant pink. Bubbles form a delicate stream of fine foam. A full-bodied nose reveals delicious aromas of red fruits and summer pudding. On the palate the attack is clean and generous, while remaining very fresh. There are noticeable but very silky tannins. Taittinger Nocturne Rose is a structured, voluptuous wine that presents an elegant, well-integrated balance of sugar, acid, and tannins.
All of Taittinger’s vineyards are managed under the careful eye of Vincent Collard and Christelle Rinvelle, Champagne Taittinger’s highly regarded vineyard manager.
Taittinger Nocturne is a "Sec" Rose Champagne made using L'addition method where still red wine is added to white wine before fermentation. This gives a consistent colour and style. This wine is composed of Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (70%). Blended from around thirty different vineyards from various vintages, it is laid down for four 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 Rose Champagne that is perfect to enjoy late in the evening.
