Wine Spectator

Strawberry puree and orange sorbet flavors are laced with accents of pickled ginger, smoke and pineapple pâte de fruit in this creamy version. Bright and balanced, with a lip-smacking finish. Drink now. 400 cases imported.

Expert Review
Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 - Bronze

Earthy, flowery aromas and mouth-filling palate of ripe black cherry and plum fruit and plentiful freshening acidity.

Expert Review
Decanter World Wine Awards 2020 - Bronze

Floral aroma. In the mouth the mousse is lively and there are notes of wild strawberry and fig alongside the soft caramel texture.

Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE: The body is pale yellow in colour with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate ring of fine foam. AROMA: The subtle and delicate bouquet reveals the delightful aromas of yellow peaches and dried apricots. The entry is smooth and creamy, yet very crisp. PALATE: The palate gives 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, Nocturne is also exceptionally smooth and creamy.

Winemakers Note

NOCTURNE
The night is more beautiful

Taittinger Nocturne is a sweeter champagne, made from 40% Chardonnay and 60 % Pinot Noir and Meunier from 35 vineyards. 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.

Taittinger Nocturne is a “Sec” champagne composed of
Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (60%).
Blended from around thir ty different vineyards from various
vintages, this wine 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
champagne that is perfect to enjoy late in the evening
