Taittinger Nocturne Sec NV

Champagne, FranceSweet champagne is a small market, but it has its place. Nocturne follows the Taittinger Brut formula but gets a much higher dosage of sugar at 17.5 g/l plus another twelve months on the lees in bottle. The additional bottle development is the key to settling the sweetness factor into the wine, as opposed to on it. It is still on the Sec scale, as it's modestly sweet. The fruit is a mix of ripe pear and ginger spices with low acidity, translating it into a smooth sipping nightclub bubble, or one that you could serve with spicy sushi rolls. Open, drink, and have fun.Tasted: 24 September 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 80.00 BCLS QC 72.00 SAQ ON 65.95 LCBO Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
