Liquormart stock a wide range of Champagnes and sparkling wines. We have compiled few basics to help you choose your Champagne. These sparkling wines range from no sweetness to more than 50 grams of sugar per Liter which is pretty darn sweet. While most people prefer brut, have a read below to see which type of sparkling wine is your type and buy your wine online.
Brut Nature – completely dry, with no sweetness whatsoever.
Extra Brut – pretty darn dry, with anywhere from 0 to 6 grams per liter (g/L) residual sugar.
Brut – dry, but with just enough sweetness to be palatable for people who enjoy dry white wines. This is the type you’ll see most often in wine shops. 5-15 g/L residual sugar, for those who know what that means.
Extra Dry – 12-20 g/L residual sugar, which means it’s going to be a bit sweeter than Brut.
Dry/Sec – 17-35 g/L residual sugar. It’s much sweeter than Brut and Extra Dry.
Demi-sec – 35-50g/liter residual sugar. It’s sweet, but Champagne has enough acidity to balance out the sweetness and so it’s still palatable — and quite enjoyable with desserts.
Doux – at 50+ g/L sugar, this is the sweetest Champagne of all. This wine is pretty darn hard to find though.
