Demi-sec

Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec pays homage to the taste of the 19th century. The higher presence of Chardonnay enhances its sweetness and silkiness. It is best served in a carafe, allowing the flavors to fully expand and develop.

The Blend

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.
Intro

The inclusion of 20 to 30% of reserve wines ensures the consistency of the Veuve Clicquot style.

These wines are kept separate, each one cellared individually, as befits its origin and age.

The level of dosage - 45g/l decided at the moment of disgorgement - results in a sweeter balance of flavours, while preserving the wine’s inherent freshness.

     

Tasting notes

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, etc…
