Description

Taittinger Nocturne is a “Sec” champagne composed of Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (60%). Blended from around 30 different vineyards from different vintages, this wine is laid down for four years to mature 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.

Sommelier Review

“The body is 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 yellow peaches and dried apricots. The entry is smooth

and creamy, yet very crisp. The taste gives way to flavours of raisins and fruits

in syrup. The long and smooth finish is distinctively sweet and full of flavour.

An aged, rich and round wine, Nocturne is also exceptionally smooth and

creamy”
