What is a Demi-Sec Sparkling Wine? Champagne, Cava, Prosecco – Wine Term Definition


Julien here the French winemaking guy
who makes wine videos here on YouTube yes wine videos we are looking at what
is a Demi Sec champagne or what is a Demi Sec sparkling wine what does it
mean well you have to know that though music is a type of sweetness level
demi-sec is going to be a type of sugar level in your champagne or sparkling
wine so to me say corresponds to a wine that has between 30 and 50 grams per
liter of sugar so what does it mean well if we compare this to the style that is
called brut which is a drier style of champagne wine, a Brut is going to have
less than 12 grams per liter of sugar so just tiny amounts of sugar so Brut is
going to feel dry crisp and vibrant but rather dry just tiny bits a little bit
of sugar just below 10 grams of sugar which is kind of just above your
perception level of the sugar so you’re not going to feel the sugars in a Brut
style of wine it’s just gonna round up and smoothen up your dry champagne wine
as an or contrary a Demi Sec wine is gonna have about three times more sugar
so between thirty and fifty grams so about three to four times more sugar
than your boat so in a demi-sec champagne or a Demi sec sparkling wine
you are definitely going to feel the sugars sugars it’s not going to be
overly sweet it’s going to be let’s say half sweet so this is what is a Demi Sec
champagne or Demi Sec sparkling wine rather sweet a style of sparkling wine I
hope this video was useful if it was give it a quick thumb up before you go to
