ARMAND DE BRIGNAC DEMI SEC
A Delicate Balance Between Fruit and Sweetness
The Armand de Brignac Demi Sec was once a curiosity shared only with visitors to the maison in Chigny-les-Roses, France. The Demi Sec was created to provide a sweeter elaboration that pairs with the most exotic of foods.
40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier.
Multi-vintage: 2009, 2010 & 2012
Notes of English candy, grapefruit, compote fruits, caramel, quince and brioche. The palate is abundant with crystalized citrus fruits, honey and hints of blackberries.
Drinking beautifully now or can be rested under ideal cellaring conditions, until 2030.
An ideal pairing with foie gras, cheeses or lightly spiced foods. Also pairs well with exotic fruits and baked desserts.
