I tend to find Demi-Sec Champagne too sweet for my tastes, and can only enjoy it in limited amounts as a result.
The aroma was mostly fruity and not particularly complex. There were less of the yeasty notes that I detect in most Champagne. Flavor was sweet and relatively bland, less acidity than I would like to balance the amount of sweetness, but it was still relatively light, which I liked.
Sparkling Wine-Tasting, Wine 14: The wine was medium lemon in colour and offered ripe apple, bread dough and rye bread aromas on the nose. On the palate the semi-dry wine showed apple, lemon and biscuit flavours, with creamy yet slightly coarse mousse, medium-plus acidity and good length. This medium-bodied sparkling wine was reasonably balanced, with average complexity.
Fine, long persisting bubbles. Medium lemon-gold. Nose of bread, toast, and red apple. Same on palate. Medium + acidity. Medium sweet. Nice. Not all that complex though. Medium length finish. Would pair well with spicy Thai food or serve as desert.

(NV Cliquot Demi-Sec) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-golden; NOSE-almond paste and cookie dough; PALATE-nice sweetness; reminds me of those sugared lemon wedge candies; a little baked bread as well; AFTER LUCKY CHARMS: good acid on the back-end; this is a little awkward; WS-88; GV-87/88
(NV Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec) A light, rather floral presence on the nose, with some crystalline flower petals leading the way. Quite precise, which makes a welcome change, with good acidity, minerally quality, but just a little hint of sulphur in the background. Smoky, textured. This is decent enough, and is certainly better than many of the other high dosage wines here.
