Veuve Clicquot / Champagne Demi-Sec / 750mL
TASTING NOTES: True to Veuve Clicquot style, Demi-Sec is blended largely from Pinot Noir and has a higher dosage which gives it richer notes, without detracting from its freshness. A fine, even effervescence greets the eye, the wine is a beautiful yellow with deep golden highlights. On the nose, it is rich in the scents of ripe fruit 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 flavors, 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, iles flottantes, crepes Suzette, creme brulee, nougat glace, or France’s traditional Twelfth Night cake, are perfect partners for this great Champagne.
Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec is blended largely from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The blend is completed by about a quarter of Chardonnay and 15-25% of reserve wines. A higher dosage gives it richer notes without detracting from its freshness.
Each Cuvee is true to the Veuve Clicquot style and spirit, faithfully maintained from the time when Madame Clicquot was running the House under the motto, ”Only one quality, the finest”. Created with a majority of Pinot Noir in the blend, the Veuve Clicquot Champagne style is noted for a firm structure, full-bodied texture and rich aromas.
