Taittinger Nocturne Sec NV

Champagne, FranceNocturne uses the same base as Taitt's NV, but sees a higher dosage (17.5 g/l) and one additional year on the lees. The additional bottle development is a good partner with the higher dosage. That said, this is on the very light end of the Sec spectrum. Punchy, potent in the mouth with some pear kissed sweetness and sweet toasted ginger spices on the finish. The name suggests what time to drink this wine; it is nightclub ready, and designed for when you may want to reduce the acidity of the wine and up the smashability factor. Instead of pairing with nightclubs, you can also partner this with a fine tuna belly sashimi.Tasted: 15 October 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 80.00 BCLS QC 72.00 SAQ ON 65.95 LCBO Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
