Case of Taittinger Demi-Sec Champagne
The Demi-Sec cuvée reflects the style and values of the Taittinger House. This seductive and complex champagne is a delight to discover or rediscover. The Demi-Sec is made with 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier. The grapes are sourced from 40 different vineyards and multiple harvests, and are matured to perfection. The wine is cellar-aged for over five years before being disgorged. With a dosage of 33g/litre of sugar, this differentiates it from the Brut Réserve, providing it with a specific sweetness to favour its pairing with desserts.
The colour of the wine is pale golden yellow. The bubbles are fine and the mousse is abundant and persistent. The nose is suggestive of delicate hints of honey and ripe fruit, with overtones of greengages and elderflowers. The first impression on the palate is lively, acidulated and soft, with citrus (mandarin) predominant, backed by peaches in syrup and dried figs. It has an end which is extraordinarily soft and notably full and long-lasting. 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.
