Taittinger, Nocturne Sec N.V, Bottle
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 18 g 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. 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.Please note that it is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor if you are under the age of 18."For a full list of ingredients and allergens, please contact us here.
