90 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "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." 01/15

91 Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "The new iteration of Taittinger Nocturne Sec non-vintage is the same blend as last year: forty percent chardonnay, thirty-five percent pinot noir and twenty-five percent pinot meunier and was finished with the same dosage as previous releases, 17.5 grams per liter. The wine ages four years on its fine lees prior to disgorgement and offers up a deep and classy nose of peach, melon, chalky soil tones, brioche, musky floral tones redolent of honeysuckle and lavender. Onthe palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite zesty, with a good core, bright acids, elegant mousse and fine interplay of minerality, acidity and residual sweetness on the long and vibrant finish. As has been the case since its first release, this is a really well done, sweeter-styled Champagne. 2017-2030+." 6/17 #69
