A beautiful yellow colour, deep golden glints, and even mousse. An intense fragrance reminiscent of ripe fruit (candied citrus fruit, fruit liqueurs) with notes of brioche and toast. Round and mellow in the mouth, with mild acidity maintaining a pleasant silkiness. The Demi-Sec is at its best with desserts.
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin is both a champagne house in Reims, France, and a brand of premium champagne. Founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, Veuve Clicquot played an important role in establishing champagne as a favored drink of haute bourgeoisie and nobility throughout Europe. The 1811 comet vintage of Veuve Clicquot is theorized to have been the first truly "modern" Champagne due to the advancements in the méthode champenoise which Veuve Clicquot pioneered through the technique of remuage.
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin's Demi-Sec Champagne is blended from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier completed by about a quarter of Chardonnay and 15-25% of reserve wines. The higher dosage gives it richer notes with detracting from its freshness.
