The name Verméil comes from a fire-gilding process first developed in France in the 18th century. Most often it is sterling silver covered with gold. The 2012 Verméil Demi-Sec is the silver of a classic Brut blend overlaid with the gold of a Le Rêve dosage. Its pale gold appearance glitters with very fine, lively bubbles.
The 2012 Verméil offers aromas of citrus peel, honeysuckle and white flowers. Luscious round flavors of honeydew and lychee lead to a very long creamy finish.
Modern tastes have driven most fine sparkling wines to the dry side; however, an extra touch of dosage makes for a delightful experience. Verméil matches particularly well with desserts but may be appreciated before dinner or with a main dish enhanced with fruit sauces or reductions.
