Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec NV

Champagne, FranceDemi-sec is a sweeter category of Champagne ranging from 32-50 g/L residual sugar. Just because they're sweeter doesn't mean they're inherently less serious, though. They can be fantastic, versatile food wines and quite complex from the dosage. The Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec is at the high end of the scale, weighing in at 45 g/L residual sugar. It doesn't show a lot of autolytic character in the glass, even though it's spent 2-3 years on its lees. Rather, the emphasis here is on the fruit, which shows a caramelized and honeyed character. It's well balanced for the style, but finishes a bit simple. Open this for dessert; maybe fresh fruit and cream.Tasted: 01 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 79.99 select private retailers AB 79.99 select private retailers MB 85.00 select private retailers ON 81.00 The Beer Guy QC 79.00 SAQ NB 79.00 NBLiquor Producer: Veuve Clicquot PonsardinDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
