Top 10 Sweet Sparkling Wines

Half-dry or half-sweet?

Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte D'Luscious Demi-Sec Rose, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Sweet Sparkling Wines

Best Demi-Sec Champagnes and Sparkling Wines

Champagnes were typically sweeter in past centuries than the drier styles in favor today. Yet, it is still possible to find bubbles with a bit of sugar added, such as the fine demi-sec (half dry) Champagnes on our list. GAYOT's Top 10 Sweet Sparkling Wines have been chosen from among top Champagnes houses and U.S. sparkling wine specialists. Although wedding cake is a classic pairing option, try spicy Asian cuisine for something more adventurous.
