Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne
Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec is the most “classic” among Veuve Clicquot champagnes. From the late 19th until the early 20th century, sweeter champagnes were very popular. Its main characteristics are special freshness and tenderness.
The Cuvée consists of as many as 50 different wines. The traditional ratio of grape varieties in the semi-dry mixture is:
- 40 to 45% of Pinot Noir,
- 30 to 35% Pinot Meunier,
- 20 to 25% chardonnay.
The addition of 20 to 30% of wine stocks ensures the unchanging style of Veuve Clicquot wines. The wines are stored separately, each in its own cellar, taking into account the origin of the wine and its age. The dosage level - 45 g / l, which is dosed during disgorging - ensures a sweeter ratio of flavors and at the same time preserves the natural freshness of the wine.
The eye notices a fresh, almost vibrant wine of a beautiful yellow color with a strong golden sheen.
The nose will detect the rich smell of ripe fruit (candied fruit, strawberry liqueur) with a hint of toast and sweet bread.
In the mouth we feel the taste of fullness and softness along with the enchanting freshness created by the gentle bitterness.
The aroma of ripe fruit stands out.
