The foundations for Taittinger were first laid back in 1932 when Pierre Taittinger bought the 200-year-old Château de la Marquetterie followed by the Forest-Fourneaux Champagne House in 1934. Since then, this brand has grown to become the third-largest domain in the Champagne region. It has remained family run, carrying its heritage and history with it through nearly a century in operation.
From these ancient cellars and vineyards that cover more than 288 hectares comes Taittinger Nocture, a beautifully blended champagne that is dressed to impress. With grapes drawn from 35 different vineyards and many different harvests, the depth of flavour achieved in this blend makes this sparkling wine exceptionally full-bodied. The constant, delicate bubbles add to the natural shimmer and attraction of this wine.
Made to accompany you gently through the night, this champagne is sure to serenade your palate as the flavours, aromas, and bubbles dance across your tongue. Within this pale yellow liquid are subtle fruit and flower notes. They highlight the smooth and creamy nature of this fine spirit. Mellow enough to enjoy on its own and special enough for any occasion, this champagne is not dry but is not too sweet either. Try a bottle and bring a bit of brilliance into the night.
