In a nutshell:
A smooth, rich and creamy 'off-dry' edition of Louis Roederer's Non-Vintage Champagne.
Demi-Sec Champagnes have a higher level of residual sugar than the more commonly seen 'brut' styles. Louis Roederer's is around 40 grams per litre compared to around 10 g/l for their Brut NV and this gives it a more honeyed character while still retaining plenty of freshness and zip. It's a wine with quite a striking depth, almond and toasty aromas, and caramelised apple and ripe pear flavours. The generosity and complexity shine through well are not masked by the dosage.
When to drink:
Soft and elegant it works well as an aperitif and goes well with fruit and cream based desserts.
Suitable for Vegetarians
