Product information

This wonderful expression of a much sweeter style of Champagne that provides an alternative to the Brut, drier style the region is famous for. Pale golden yellow, intense & perfectly transparent tinted with a light bronze halo. Aromas of ripe fruit with concentrated scents of pineapple & apricot. A pleasant finish that is flavourful & pronounced with aromas of candied fruit, freshness & vivacity.

Beautifully Smooth Champagne

So happy that Ocado stocks the Charles Lafitte Demi Sec it is a beautiful smooth easy drinking champagne. Would recommend. I think the person who reviewed stating it was sweet must have bought the Demi Sec instead of Brut.

Corked for Christmas

Has been a house favourite , especially when on offer but Christmas Day was soured by. accorded bottle with no Demi sec as back up.Hardly a disaster in the current circumstances but interesting to see if this is a recurring problem

beautiful balanced flavour.

Loved this. Best example of a good demi sec on Ocado. Went really well with birthday cake as not as dry as a Brut. Will definitely be reordering to go with the Christmas cake. Very popular with everyone. Highly recommend.

The balance wasn't there

The balance between sweet and dry just wasn't subtle enough for me. This is a little clumsy and confusing, it's neither one thing or the other. Not unpleasant but too challenging. I wouldn't buy again.
