Champagne Taittinger Nocturne Sec NV

Champagne, FranceNocturne is nightclub champagne, though no longer jazzed up with a fancy bling packaging. Nocturne 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 (17.5 g/L) to appeal to the late-night crowd. As far as Sec (off-dry) champagnes go, this is at the bottom of the sweet scale, with cushy, doughy biscuit, and grippy apple texture to the ripe red apple, lemon, and subtle toast on the core. Super friendly and easy drinking, most newbie Champagne drinkers will love this and probably not even notice the dosage.Tasted: 24 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
