The general movement towards drier wines, together with the habit of drinking champagne as an aperitif, has popularised the consumption of brut champagnes. However, many wine-lovers still enjoy the sweetness of past pleasures provided by a Demi-Sec. Laurent-Perrier Harmony is a Demi-Sec wine, rounded and delicate, thanks to a high proportion of Chardonnay and a well-balanced dosage.
History of the wine
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 Harmony, as an ideal companion for desserts or sweet & savoury dishes.
