Why do we call our "off-dry" cuvee "Extra Dry?" The reason goes back to the beginnings of the traditional Methode Champenoise process. 200 years ago most champagnes were very sweet - typically 3 to 5% sugar. About 150 years ago a drier style began to emerge at about 1.5 to 2% sugar and was called "extra dry." By today's standards this level of sugar is considered "off-dry" (or slightly sweet), but the historic term "extra dry" has stayed with us.

Wine Enthusiast: 86 Points
Not as dry as the name suggests, this offering seems fairly sweet, with sugary lime, orange and vanilla flavors. You'll find a rich streak of doughy yeast and acidity, giving it that typical Champagne note.
