French for ‘Dry’, which as it is used in Champagne, can be misleading. A Champagne labeled ‘Sec’ will be somewhat sweet to modern palates; it may legally contain up to 35 grams per liter of residual sugar. Sec Champagnes are dry in comparison to the 18thand early 19th century wines which were much sweeter.
