Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is synonymous with the art of living. The House style distinguishes itself through the dominance of Pinot Noir which gives strength, complexity and elegance to our wines.
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, îles flottantes, crêpes Suzette, crème brûlée, nougat glacé, or France’s traditional Twelfth Night cake, are perfect partners for this great Champagne.
Do not hesitate to serve Demi Sec from a carafe, as they did in Madame Clicquot’s time. A few minutes in a previously chilled carafe will allow the wine to show off its rounded flavor, and all the splendour of its golden hue.
