Brut Nature, Extra Brut and Brut Champagne

  • Brut Nature: 0–3 g/L of sugar
  • Extra Brut: 3–6g/L of sugar
  • Brut: 6–12 g/L of sugar

The first stop on this journey is the delicate yet potent Brut, Brut Nature, and Extra Brut style Champagne. If you prefer a dry finish, these bubbles will be right up your alley, as they add a sharpness that easily cuts through richness. Imagine buttery mashed potatoes doused in gravy or a buttery sauce atop some fish. Because the Brut Champagnes cleanses the palate between bites, the experience is consistently delicious.

Extra Dry Champagne

  • Extra Dry: 12–17 g/L of sugar

Next, we explore Extra Dry Champagne, which is slightly sweeter than the brut styles. If you’re imagining light, flavorful, bite-sized delights such as sushi or shrimp in cocktail sauce, you’d be spot on. Sip on this champagne and then indulge in your seafood; the combination is bound to send your taste buds into a whirl

Dry Champagne

  • Dry Champagne: 17–32 g/L of sugar

We are now entering the realm of Dry Champagne, or as the French say, “Sec”. The sensual finesse of this champagne calls for something equally refined, yet this time with a touch more sweetness. Fancy making a lemon pie? Or perhaps some jam tarts? Our dry champagnes pair beautifully with the tart sweetness of a lemon pie and the tangy sweetness of jam pastries.

Demi-Sec and Doux Champagne

  • Demi-Sec: 32–50 g/L of sugar
  • Doux: more than 50 g/L.

Don’t be put off by the extra sweetness of Demi-Sec and Doux; they’re truly delightful and are for those with bold tastes. Picture yourself savoring our Demi-Sec champagne with a plate of foie gras or our Doux with a bowl of popcorn. Contrasting? Yes! Delightful? Indeed!
