Veuve Clicquot
Demi Sec Champagne

Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec Champagne is considerably sweeter than the dry varieties. However, our Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec Champagne is regarded as superior and will provide a most pleasing desert champagne for our discerning Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec Champagne customers.

French Champagne can be broadly expressed by the following terms related to the sweetness of the mature Champagne:

Extra Brut: The "Natural" Champagne: Extremely dry and not a very popular choice for the majority.

Brut: This Champagne is certainly dry and generally the most popular. Most vinyards select the best grapes for this vintage.

Extra Sec: Extra Sec means extra dry, but is sweeter than Brut and is a little less formal for alfresco lunch parties and social gatherings. Often chosen to accompany hors d'oeuvres especially Canapé and Petite sandwiches.

Sec: Sec Champagne is a sweeter Champagne than Extra Sec and a good alternative for lunches. More so when desserts are also offered, although a Demi Sec might be a better choice or addition.

Demi Sec: Demi Sec can be very sweet and certainly is a desert Champagne. Demi Sec is often viewed as purposely sweetened to hide a poor flavour, but a good Demi Sec Champagne is a delectable summer choice with a memorable beauty for a summer wedding.

Doux: Doux Champagne can have a sugar content up to 5% for accompanying fruit, sweets, cakes and other desserts suitable for an afternoon soirée. Doux is a unique sparkling wine - there is really nothing to compare with it.
