Taittinger Nocturne Rosé is a "Sec" champagne composed of Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (70%). Blended from around thirty 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 Rosé champagne that is perfect to enjoy late in the evening. The colour is a bright, intense, flamboyant pink. Bubbles form a delicate cordon of fine foam. A full-bodied nose reveals delicious aromas of patisserie. 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. Taittinger Nocturne Rosé is a champagne for the beginning and the end of the evening. It can accompany a gourmet dessert (even a chocolate one) or a chic snack. It will carry revelers and champagne lovers to the end of the night.
