About This Wine:

A fine, even effervescence greets on the eye, the wine being a beautiful yellow with deep golden highlights.

On the nose, it is rich in the scents of ripe fruit (candied fruits, berry liquor), 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.

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% pinot meunier
20 to 25% chardonnay

The inclusion of 20 to 30% of reserve wines ensures the consistency of the Veuve Clicquot Demi style.

The level of dosage - 45g/l decided at the moment of dégorgement - results in a sweeter balance of flavours, while preserving the wine's inherent freshness.

Ratings & Reviews

89 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Light yellow-gold. Deeply pitched aromas of peach nectar, tangerine and honey, with a toasty topnote. Offers plump orchard fruit and floral flavors and a smooth texture, with a touch of honey adding depth. Finishes with good sappy persistence and lingering floral and candied fig notes. Not overtly sweet." - Josh Raynolds (December 2013)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Demi-Sec is essentially an off-dry Champagne. This wine is soft, hinting at some sweetness while preserving crisp citrus and apple flavors. It has some richness as well, and its soft character makes it a good partner with cold meats or pâtés." - Roger Voss (12/1/2015)
