Product Description

A fine, even effervescence greets the eye, Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec has a beautiful yellow with deep golden highlights. On the nose, it is rich in the scents of ripe fruit (candied fruits, berry liquor), with hints of toasts and brioche.

In the mouth, the wine displays both roundness and mellowness, combined with a delightful freshness due to its gentle acidity. The aromas of ripe fruit are very noticeable.

With its equilibrium tending towards sweetness and fruited flavours, Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec goes particularly well with those desserts which have a fruit base: pear tarts, gratin aux agrumes, charlotte aux abricots. But equally, îles flottantes, crêpes Suzette, crème brûlée, nougat glacé, or France’s traditional Twelfth Night cake, are perfect partners for this great Champagne.

After additional cellaring (two to three years, or even more in the right conditions), Demi-Sec develops yet richer notes of praline or toasts. It is then ideal with caramel- or praline-based desserts: Paris-Brest, tarte Tatin, pears with caramel etc...

Grape Variety: 40-45% Pinot Noir, 30-35% Pinot Meunier, 20-25% Chardonnay.

Background: Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec is perhaps the House’s most "classical " champagne; from the close of the last century through to the early 1900s, there was a definitive preference for sweeter champagnes.

As with all blends of Veuve Clicquot, the Demi-Sec is based on a preponderance of Pinot Noir, which gives Champagne its fundamental structure. The desire for very distinct fruit favours in the blend indicated a higher level of Pinot Meunier than would be found in, for example, Brut Yellow Label. Chardonnay completes the blend, contributing its special freshness and delicacy.
