Demi-Sec champagne, with its 'sweet' aspect, was much-appreciated in the 18th century. It was widely known as a wine for grand occasions and was hugely popular until the early 19th century. The shift to a taste for drier wines, together with the more recent trend of drinking champagne as an aperitif rather than with dessert have led to the growing popularity of Brut wines. Yet many champagne lovers are still attached to the subtlety of the pleasures of yesteryear and are today excitedly rediscovering the sheer freshness and rich intensity of Laurent-Perrier Demi Sec, as an ideal companion for desserts or sweet & savoury dishes.
