The body is pale yellow in colour with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate ring of fine foam. The subtle and delicate bouquet reveals the delightful aromas of yellow peaches and dried apricots.The entry is smooth and creamy, yet very crisp.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. Taittinger Nocturne is a champagne to be enjoyed at the end of an evening. It is the perfect accompaniment to dessert or foie gras on gingerbread - and will gladly have champagne lovers celebrating all night long.

(60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay; 17.5 g/l dosage; L4110HB00700): Bright yellow. Deeply perfumed aromas of poached pear, melon, nectarine and lemon curd are complemented by suggestions of buttered toast, anise and chamomile. Plush and broad on the palate, offering ripe citrus and pit fruit flavors with a touch of chalky minerality adding cut and lift. A floral quality builds slowly with air and carries through the spicy, sappy, gently sweet finish. I like this Champagne's balance of fruitiness and vivacity and there's no way that I'd have guessed that its dosage was so high.

Lightly juicy, with flavors of pineapple upside-down cake, pastry cream, smoke and spice. Fresh and creamy finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported.

Designed as a party Champagne with its soft, lightly sweet character, Nocturne is well balanced. Just enough acidity contrasts with the ripe fruit and delicate texture. The wine is ready to drink.
