|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.
Originally created in 1734, Taittinger Champagne House was purchased by Pierre Taittinger in 1932. It is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be managed by people who bear its name. In 1942s, Pierre Taittinger boldly introduced Chardonnay as the dnant variety in Taittinger blends, crafting the renowned house style.
Champagne Taittinger's respect for family traditions ensures that top quality is a constant priority which is reflected in its reputation. In 2006, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger presided over the destinies of Champagne Taittinger, remaining faithful to family and champagne-making tradition.
