Taittinger Nocturne is a 'sec' Champagne composed of Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (60%). A blend of around 30 different crus from several harvests, this wine is aged for at least four years before being disgorged.
A 17.g/l dosage of cane sugar combined with the slow cellar-ageing creates a round, mellow, smooth Champagne that is perfect to enjoy late in the evening.
Pale yellow in colour with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate ring of fine foam. The subtle and delicate bouquet reveals the delightful aromas of white flowers and ripe fruits (yellow peaches and dried apricots).
The palate is smooth and velvety, yet very crisp and gives way to flavours of raisins and fruits in syrup.
The long and smooth finish is distinctively sweet and full of flavour.
A mature, rich and round wine, Nocturne is also exceptionally smooth and creamy.
Taittinger Nocturne is a Champagne to be enjoyed at the end of an evening. It is the perfect accompaniment to dessert or rich patés with toasted brioche, but may also drive the Champagne lovers until the end of the night.
