Veuve Clicquot White Label Demi-Sec

VEUV005
Continuity of style is all-important to Veuve Clicquot, and it is displayed year after year in Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec. Like Brut Yellow Label, Demi-Sec is a blend of several good years, but behind its white label is a very different wine, sweeter yet equally mature and balanced. Demi-Sec is a Champagne blended from wines of several good years, each one made of the grapes of Veuve Clicquot's legendary Premiers and Grands Crus.

Veuve Clicquot

Veuve Clicquot was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, playing an important role in establishing champagne as a favoured drink of haute bourgeoisie and nobility throughout Europe. It was later Phillipe`s daughter-in-law, Nicole-Barbe Clicquot, who really laid the foundations of the modern company. Ever in pursuit of excellence and innovation, in 1816 Madame Clicquot invented the riddling table with the aim of obtaining clarified Champagnes of unrivalled quality. She became known by her contemporaries as the "Grand Dame of Champagne", in recognition of her audacity and determination. Madame Clicquot used her skills to develop an exceptional wine-growing territory, consisting of 515 hectares in the heart of the Champagne region’s finest vineyard estates.

Tasting Notes

Very upfront, with nice core of sweet glace fruit and a creamy, honeyed style. It reminds me of pukka Italian ice cream at its best!

Food Matches

Try this with fish canapes, smoked salmon, poached fish or even a decent roast lamb - very versatile!
