Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec

Sale price$79.99

Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec is perhaps the House's most classical champagne; from the close of the last century through to the early 1900s, there was a definitive preference for sweeter champagnes. As with all blends of Veuve Clicquot, the Demi-Sec is based on a preponderance of Pinot Noir, which gives Champagne its fundamental structure. The desire for very distinct fruit flavors in the blend indicated a higher level of Pinot Meunier than would be found in, for example, Yellow Label. Chardonnay completes the blend, contributing its special freshness and delicacy.

No fewer than 50 individual wines make up this cuvee. The traditional proportions for Demi-Sec are: 40 to 45% Pinot Noir 30 to 35% Pinot 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 apart, each one cellared individually, as befits its origin and age. The level of dosage - 45 g/l decided at the moment of disgorgement - results in a sweeter balance of flavors, while preserving the wines inherent freshness.
