Taittinger Demi Sec Champagne
A brilliant golden yellow in colour in the glass
Bubbles are fine, while the foam is discreet yet lingering. The nose is very open & expressive, delivers aromas of fruit & brioche. Fragrances are reminiscent of peach, flowers & vanilla. The palate is lively, crisp & harmonious. This is delicate wine with flavors of fresh fruit & honey.
All in all, a rounded, sweet and mellow wine of great charm and sensuality. Taittinger Demi Sec is a gourmet wine. Its sweetness and mellowness, combined with the dosage, make it an ideal accompaniment to most desserts, including chocolate cake, strawberry charlotte and warm madeleines.
Taittinger Demi Sec derives from the same type of blend as Taittinger Brut Réserve: it is made up of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The finished blend includes over 40 “crus” from several different harvests, perfectly matured.
The wine is left on yeast for three years before being “disgorged”. A dosage of 35 g of cane sugar per litre is then added to render it demi sec. This dosage, which distinguishes this wine from Taittinger Brut Réserve, gives an additional sweetness which enhances its suitability to accompany certain sweet dishes.
