Wine information: Champagne Taittinger Nocturne Sec is an exceptional “Sec” champagne made from 40% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier. The finished blend includes over 35 “crus” from several different harvests, perfectly matured. Approximately 50% of the the grapes from the Taittinger estate with some coming from their prestige vineyards at Chateau de la Marquetterie. The wine is aged on lees for at least 4 years before being “disgorged”. A dosage of 20 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. The dosage is 17.5 g/L (compared with around 9 g/L for a Brut Champagne).

Tasting Notes: Champagne Taittinger Nocturne Sec is a pale yellow colour with shimmering highlights. The bubbles form a delicate, fine mousse. Its nose is subtle and fresh with delightful aromas of white blossom and ripe fruit accompanied by 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 flavour sweetness. All in all, a mature, rounded, rich, mellow wine of intense smoothness, tenderness and passion.

Food & Wine match: Champagne Taittinger Nocturne Sec makes a delicious accompaniment to seafood and foie gras on gingerbread and is guaranteed to have Champagne lovers partying all night long. A great Champange who find Brut Champagne too dry but Demi Sec Champagne to sweet!
