Pale salmon color. Fresh aromas and flavors of incense, peach, and tamarind with a silky, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light body and a polished, brisk finish evoking accents of apricot and almond with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A delicate sparkler with a pillowy froth.

Demi Sec

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Demi-Sec, literally "half-dry" is a term used in Champagne. Although called half-dry, a demi-sec Champagne is medium sweet, as it is legally defined as having between 33 to 50 grams of residual sugar. Thus a demi-sec is too sweet for the dinner table, but works well with pastries and cakes.

Once popular, it has declined in sales, as consumers prefer drier Champagnes.
