Taittinger Nocturne is a “Sec” champagne composed of Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (60%). Blended from around thirty different vineyards from various vintages, this wine is laid down for four years to age before being disgorged. A 17.5g/l dosage of sugar cane combined with the slow cellar-ageing create a round and smooth champagne that is perfect to enjoy late in the evening.
The body is pale yellow in color with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate ring of fine foam.
The subtle and delicate bouquet reveals the delightful aromas of yellow peaches and dried apricots.
The entry is smooth and creamy, yet very crisp. The palate gives way to flavors of raisins and fruits in syrup. The long and smooth finish is distinctively sweet and full of flavor.
A mature, rich and round wine, Nocturne is also exceptionally smooth and creamy.
