Moet Chandon Demi-Sec NV

Moet Chandon Demi-Sec NV #1

Moet Chandon Demi-Sec NV

60% Pinot Noir; 30% Pinot Meunier; 10% Chardonnay.  10 – 20 % reserve wines.

Mid-80’s disgorgement.  A burnished gold color with touches of amber.  A bold, exotic nose: well-oiled orchard fruit, malt, singed almond and hot buttered toast.  A honeyed praline on the palate, quite full and almost taffy-like in its palate saturation: bruised pear, nut oil, kinky caramel and burnt jelly.  Demi-Sec indeed: this is flapper sweet.  And nicely long.  Quite an impressive, vivacious bead.  Soft mousse.  Not a serious wine by any measure –  it’s just giggly good.  And this style will keep very well.  Drink soon.
