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.
As with all Veuve Clicquot blends, Demi-Sec is predominantly Pinot Noir, which gives the champagne its fundamental structure. The pursuit of very distinct fruit flavors means that there is a higher level of Meunier in the blend than would typically be found in Yellow Label, for example, and Chardonnay completes the blend. 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.
