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 Rosé is a structured, voluptuous wine that presents an elegant, well-integrated balance of sugar, acid, and tannins
The grapes for Nocturne come from prime vineyards throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming from the Taittinger estate such as the vineyards at Château de la Marquetterie
Taittinger Nocturne is a "Sec" Rosé 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 Rosé Champagne that is perfect to enjoy late in the evening.
