Champagne Laurent-Perrier Demi-Sec harkens back to an era when wines were sweeter

Laurent-Perrier Demi-Sec
Champagne, France

Laurent-Perrier's fortunes were at their lowest ebb during World War II. Bernard de Nonancourt, who would later lead the company to success, was one of those who liberated Adolf Hitler's wine cellar, which was full of contraband Champagne. This demi-sec bottling harkens back to an era when wines were sweeter, offering honeyed aromas and candied fruit flavors.
