“With its equilibrium that tends towards sweet and fruit flavors, Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec is an indulgent treat for champagne lovers – and perfectly suited for dessert.”

“With ripe fruits, and hint of brioche and ripe fruits; Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec opens the palette across the flavor spectrum.”

“No fewer than 50 individual wines make up this cuvée. The traditional proportions for Demi Sec are: 40 to 45% Pinot Noir, 30 to 35% Meunier, 20 to 25 % Chardonnay.”

“As with all Veuve Clicquot blends, Demi-Sec is predominantly Pinot Noir (40-45%), which gives the champagne its fundamental structure.”

“The pursuit of very distinct fruit flavors means that there is a higher level of Meunier (30-35%) in the blend than would typically be found in Yellow Label, for example, and Chardonnay completes the blend (20-25%).”

“The inclusion of 30-45% reserve wines ensures the consistency of the Veuve Clicquot style. The long aging in our Crayères (3 years minimum for Demi-Sec) gives silkiness to the Champagne.”

“Finally, a dosage of 45 g/L gives Demi-Sec a sweeter balance of flavors while preserving the wine’s inherent freshness.”

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