Taittinger Nocturne Sec 75cl

Taittinger Nocturne Sec

A relatively new wine from Taittinger, a blend of 40% Chardonnay with the balance made up of the red Pinot grapes. What makes this different from the Brut is that it has a dosage of 20 g/l (grammes per litre) of sugar added prior to having the cork inserted, this compares to around 10 g/l for their Brut wine. The effect is to make the wine seem richer without it being as sweet as a demi-sec which would have about 35 g/l of sugar added to the final wine.
