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.
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.
