Armand de Brignac

Demi Sec

Overview

Composition

Reviews

The only prestige cuvée Demi Sec in the world, this unique champagne is crafted using just the ultra-selective first portion of the cuvée press – a winemaking signature of all Armand de Brignac assemblages. With a dosage on the lowest end of the Demi Sec spectrum, it delivers powerful fruit flavor, complexity from additional age on lees, and a balanced sweetness that makes it the perfect accompaniment to an array of cuisines.

TASTING NOTE

Notes of English candy, grapefruit, compote fruits, caramel, quince and brioche. The palate is abundant with crystalized citrus fruits, honey and hints of blackberries.

40% Pinot Noir / 40% Chardonnay / 20% Pinot Meunier

CELLARING POTENTIAL

Potential to further age this cuvée for another 10 to 15 years, to see the development of more sweet, honeyed fruit notes.
