Nocturne Sec City Lights Champagne NV
Sparkling and glittering like stars and city lights; this is a Champagne made for the night…
Taittinger Nocturne Sec has a touch more sweetness than the classic Brut Réserve, making it a fine choice for pairing with gingerbread and mince pies over the festive period, or with desserts, mature cheeses and rich pâte throughout the year and all night long. Having said all that about the night, we also find that little extra sweetness works wonderfully with croissants during a Champagne breakfast if your night goes on into the day.
As dazzling as its bottle and gift box, this is a Champagne of impeccable quality, with a high Chardonnay content (40%) and immense complexity, which comes from the 35 vineyards and various vintages that it’s lovingly crafted from. Matured for at least four years before being disgorged, Nocturne Sec is rich and full-bodied, displaying notes of ripe peach, dried apricot, golden raisins, white blossom and syrup. Receiving a dosage of 17.5 g/l, this ‘Sec’ sits between Taittinger’s Brut Réserve (9g/l) and a demi-sec style, making it a wonderful Champagne for any occasion, but particularly good for those who find classic Champagne just a little too dry. Make a night of it yourself or gift it to one of those ships that passes in the night.
Taittinger’s vineyards date back to 1734 and were owned by Jacques Fourneaux. The château was bought by Pierre Taittinger in 1932 and the business prides itself on being one of the last remaining independent, family-owned Champagne houses, run by the name on the label. This vegan-friendly Champagne is a brilliant addition to the Taittinger range.
