A beautiful yellow colour with deep golden glints, and fine, even mousse. An intense fragrance reminiscent of ripe fruit (candied citrus fruit, fruit liqueurs) with notes of brioche and toast. Round and mellow in the mouth, with mild acidity maintaining a pleasant silkiness.The Demi-Sec is at its best with desserts. Pastries and desserts based on fresh fruit, citrus and dried fruit will lend delightfully with the wine's smooth qualities.
