Guide Review - Champagne Demoiselle Brut

After you appreciate the beauty of the packaging, the first thing you notice about Demoiselle is the subtle aroma, and green and citrus flavors of this tasty champagne. While the fruity, full flavor is noticeable, the champagne retains its dry character. It's not a drink to be tossed down during a toast, but rather savored as an apertif. Named for the dragonflies on the river near the Chateau in France, this affordable bottle will be a welcomed gift for your hostess.
