Fine, even effervescence greets the eye, the wine being a beautiful yellow with deep golden highlights. On the nose, it is rich in the scents of ripe fruit (candied fruits, berry liquor), with hints of toasts and brioche.
In the mouth, the wine displays both roundness and mellowness, combined with a delightful freshness due to its gentle acidity. The aromas of ripe fruit are very noticeable.
With its equilibrium tending towards sweetness and fruited flavours, Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec goes particularly well with those desserts which have a fruit base: pear tarts, gratin aux agrumes, charlotte aux apricots. But equally, iles flottantes, crepes Suzette, crème brulee, nougat glace, or France’s traditional Twelfth Nigh cake, are perfect partners for this great Champagne.
