Champagne Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Demi-Sec 1998
Creamy, with a touch of sweetness. Veuve Clicquot's Demi-Sec (the classic accompaniment to dessert) is equally pleasing as an apéritif. This stylish blend is evocative of the wine Madame Clicquot herself produced in the early 19th century. Wonderful with fruit and cream-based desserts such as tarts, mousses and especially crème brÃ»lée.

Champagne, FranceVeuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne is the perfect Champagne for those who favor a little sweetness in their bubbly!Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut is named for the matriarch of the brand, Madame Clicquot (1777-1866), one of the first businesswomen of the modern era. When her husband died, Madame Clicquot took over his small Champagne house, a widow ("veuve") at the age of 27. She made important technological innovations (including the invention of riddling) and led the house to world renown. Madame Clicquot is perhaps most famous for sending a secret shipment of her Champagne to Russia in 1814, in defiance of Napoleon's blockade!Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne is a beautiful yellow in color with deep golden highlights and a fine, even effervescence. It is made primarily of Pinot Noir, for its structure, Pinot Meunier, for its distinctive fruit flavors, and Chardonnay, for its freshness and delicacy. On the nose, it offers ripe fruit and berries with hints of brioche. In the mouth the wine is round, mellow and fresh with ripe fruit flavors. This Champagne is long, crisp, and spicy on the finish.Enjoy Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne with pear tarts, crepes Suzette, creme brulee, and tarte Tatin. Cheers!
