Very nice - make no bones about its sweetness, its clearly a demi-sec, which although it translates as "semi-sweet", actually means "fairly-sweet". The wine is very soft, well rounded and smooth with flavors of passion fruits and some nice currant notes.

Beautiful creamy golden color with a biscuit, toasty nose with a touch of honey. Hazelenut, apricots, bright honey. Very enjoyable on its own. And with dessert we ordered bartlett pear cake w. pumpkin spice icecream and apple tart w. Granny smith apple icecream. Delish!

Sweet champagne, ideal for dessert. Perfect balance between fruit and sweetness. If you have never tasted demi-sec champagne, you have to.

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!

Demi-Sec, a slightly sweet style of Champagne, is at its best when served with desserts. Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec, marked by fresh peach, nectarine and orange blossom, pairs beautifully with Godiva's assorted deep dark chocolates, smooth

Creamy, with a touch of sweetness. Veuve Clicquot's Demi-Sec (the classic accompaniment to dessert) is equally pleasing as an apTritif. This stylish blend is evocative of the wine Madame Clicquot herself produced in the early 19th century.

Firm, with a fine mousse, this shows bright apple, lemon and floral flavors. Graceful, ending with a chalky sensation around the gums. Good length. Drink now through 2008.

This strikes a nice balance between fruit and sweetness, retaining plenty of fresh fruity acid structure.

Like a sweeter version of a good blanc de blancs, with graphite, honey and lemon notes that mix with the richness and lively acidity. Moderate length. Drink now. -BS

Winemaker's Notes:

Demi-Sec is blended largely from Pinot Noir with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier as well as reserve wines. The liqueur d'expdition (carefully prepared and dosed with 45 g per litre by our oenologists) gives it a sweeter yet still very fresh harmony. Demi-Sec is at its best when served with desserts. You could even serve it in a carafe not to decant it but to admire the colour and the delicate bubbles of this elegant wine.
