Champagne Taittinger Nocturne Sec NV

Taittinger Nocturne is a pale yellow in colour with delicate fine bubbles. Its nose is subtle, fresh and reminiscent of white blossom and ripe fruit, with overtones of yellow peaches and dried apricots. On the palate it is soft, fresh and mellow with delicate floral and ripe fruit flavours. The aftertaste is long and soft with a subtle sweetness. All in all it is rounded, rich and well balanced, smooth and creamy. Taittinger Nocturne is a Champagne to be enjoyed at the end of an evening. It is the perfect accompaniment to autumnal fruit based desserts or rich pâtés and terrines and will gladly have Champagne lovers celebrating all night long.

Vineyard
The grapes for Nocturne come from prime vineyards
throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming
from the Taittinger estate such as the vineyards at Château
de la Marquetterie.
Winemaking
Taittinger Nocturne is a 'Sec' Champagne made from 40%
Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The
finished blend includes over 30 'crus'. The wine is aged on its
lees for at least 4 years, often longer, before being
'disgorged'. A dosage of 17.5g of cane sugar per litre is then
added. This dosage is twice that of Taittinger Brut Réserve
NV.
