Taittinger Nocturne Sec 'City Lights' NV Gift Boxed
This an exciting and stylish Cuvée from the Taittinger family, the easy drinking softness that a touch of sweetness brings makes this a perfect wine to enjoy late into the evening. Not quite as dry as Brut, but not sweet by any means, Nocturne is elegant and beautifully balanced, with soft, mellow orchard fruit characters and a lingering, elegant finish.
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 dessert and will gladly have Champagne lovers celebrating all night long.
Taittinger Nocturne is a 'Sec' Champagne made from 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This finished Non Vintage Brut 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.
