Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec Champagne
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Light yellow-gold. Deeply pitched aromas of peach nectar, tangerine and honey, with a toasty topnote. Offers plump orchard fruit and floral flavors and a smooth texture, with a touch of honey adding depth. Finishes with good sappy persistence and lingering floral and candied fig notes. Not overtly sweet.
This is a rich demi-sec without being too sweet. It has a good balance of ripe creamed-pear and baked-apple flavors along with a bright layer of acidity. It’s an harmonious whole, and ready to drink now.
