Champagne Taittinger Nocturne Sec NV

Champagne, FranceNocturne is nightclub champagne, jazzed up with a fancy packaging (my bottle is deemed City Lights) and a higher dosage (17.5 g/L) to appeal to the late-night crowd. This cuvée uses the same base as Taittinger's NV (40% chardonnay and 60% blend of the pinots noir and meunier) but gets one additional year on the lees before release which makes for a good partner with the higher sugar cane dosage. As far as Sec (off-dry) champagnes go, this is at the bottom of the sweet scale, so if you're looking for a noticeably sweet champers, this is not it. What this is, is smoothed out, with champagne's edges rounded off with the dosage, bound by red apple, ripe pear, and lightly toasted brioche. The sugar also helps this go down a bit too easy, so prepare the dance the night away.Tasted: 03 November 2022Tasted by: Prices:
