A Taittinger speciality, the Nocturne Sec is a soft gentle champagne with a beautiful texture. Nocturne Sec is easy to drink with a soft sweet nature. Very gentle on the palate and not so dry. One to be enjoyed all evening.

This champagne is very soft and full of flavour. It offers superb balance, the gentle Meunier ensuring the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are not over dominant. The gentleness lends towards a mellow fruity character. The wine is aged on its lees for a minimum of 4 years before being disgorged. The sweetness comes thanks a good dosage (18g) of cane sugar, so no wonder its so soft and sweet! The dosage is twice that of the dosage added to the Taittinger Brut.

40% Chardonnay
30% Pinot Noir
30% Pinot Meunier

Tasting Notes

On the Eye:
A pale yellow colour with delicate bubbles

On the Nose:
Yellow peaches and dried apricots give the ripe fruit notes of this wine, with white blossom as a compliment

On the Palate:
Very gentle and soft in the first attack, the slight sweetness being balanced with a freshness and richness from the syrup soaked fruit and raisins

Food Pairing:
Can be enjoyed with a meal or as an aperitif, but we think its a nice party champagne
