A vibrant pink colour. The bubbles are fine, and the foam persistent. The full nose, wonderfully expressive, is fresh and young. It delivers aromas of red fruits (freshly crushed wild raspberries, cherries, blackcurrants). On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance and is both velvety and full-bodied. The flavours are reminiscent of fresh, crisp red fruits. The palate can be summed up in three words: lively, fruity and fresh, as only a fine rose blend should be.
Taittinger Nocturne is a pale yellow colour with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate necklace of fine mousse. Its nose is subtle and fresh, suggestive of the delightful aromas of white blossom and ripe fruit, with overtones of yellow peaches and dried apricots. The first impression on the palate is soft and mellow and remains very fresh. It is dominated by flavours reminiscent of raisins and fruit in syrup. The aftertaste is long and soft with an enjoyable and full of flavour sweetness. All in all, a mature, rounded, rich, mellow wine of intense smoothness, tenderness and passion.
