Taittinger Nocturne Sec Champagne NV 75cl
Taittinger Nocturne is an exceptional "Sec" champagne made from 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The finished blend includes over 35 "crus" from several different harvests, perfectly matured. The wine is ageing on yeast for at least 4 years before being "disgorged". A dosage of 18g of cane sugar per litre is then added. This dosage, combined with the rounded quality and maturity of this wine, gives it a highly distinctive body and smoothness, making it the perfect champagne to be enjoyed late in the evening.
Taittinger Nocturne is a pale yellow colour with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate necklace of fine mousse.
Nose is fresh with delightful aromas of white blossom and ripe fruit, with overtones of yellow peaches and dried apricots.
The palate has flavours of raisins and fruit in syrup. The aftertaste is long and soft with an enjoyable and full of sweetness.
