Taittinger Nocturne NV Sec Champagne
Taittinger has a reputation for excellence dating back nearly 200 years to 1734, so even when they create a Champagne as a digestif or accompaniment to dessert, they deliver the best. Taittinger Nocturne is a full-bodied smooth, and creamy Champagne beautifully blended from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier from 35 vineyards. With its stunning, borderline outrageous purple chequered bottle, Nocturne is the go-to drop to round off a great party with style.
From aromas of fluffy Madeira cake and plump sultanas, the palate of Taittinger Nocturne blossoms with flavours of stone fruits, honey and hints of spiced vanilla. The palate gives way to flavours of raisins and fruits in syrup. The long smooth finish is particularly sweet and full of flavour. Perfect with dessert, cheese platters or as a digestif.

In the strange world of Champagne, Sec (dry) on the label means a wine that is less dry than Brut. It is more to do with fullness and weight than sugar. This wine bears ripe fruit, flavors of peaches, creamy pears and light nougat and spice character. Pair this with richly sauced foods.

From the sweet side at 20g/l of sugar at dosage look for a fragrant, toasted, baked apple nose with a commensurate amount of minerality. Full bodied with good acidity balance and more complex notes of spice, brioche, citrus and cherry flavours. Easy to drink with a little less austerity on the palate. Think foie gras or desserts.

Nocturne is a non-vintage Sec Champagne blended from select base wines with an emphasis on Chardonnay. The cuvée is composed of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Yellow-gold in color, it displays stone fruit on the nose with yeast and toast notes. On the palate, it has big volume, a creamy silky texture, and an elegant persistent finish.
