Description

A Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs where freshness and elegance are on a par with finesse and minerality

The estate

At the end of the First World War, the "poilu" Manuel De Sousa, a member of the Portuguese Expeditionary Force, left his native land and settled in Avize, France. Sadly passing away due to an illness before reaching the age of 30, this hard worker left his wife and children behind. Fortunately, his son Antoine married Zoémie Bonville, the daughter of a winegrower, a few years later, and their union gave rise to the De Sousa Champagne House. For three generations now, the continuous search for excellence and respect for both nature and the environment has shone through the estate’s spirit. At the helm of the family-owned business since 1986, Erick De Sousa is committed to driving forward the work of his predecessors while ensuring that the values of passion and tradition are passed down for many generations to come.

The vineyard

This Extra Brut Réserve Grand cru Blanc de Blancs stems from great Champagne terroirs located in the Côte des Blancs (Cramant, Avize, Oger, Mesnil sur Oger and Chouilly). The old vines are more than 43 years old and are deeply rooted in the chalky soil. The vineyard is managed using organic and biodynamic viticultural practices.

Vinification and ageing

Following manual harvesting, the grapes are vinified in tanks.

The blend

Chardonnay (100%).

Maison De Sousa’s Extra Brut Réserve Grand cru Blanc de Blancs: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The crystal-clear colour reveals a lovely golden hue, with green highlights. The effervescence is delicate and durable.

Nose

Expressive, the nose opens with intense aromas of fresh, slightly roasted coffee, along with an intense floral expression. The ensemble is underlined by hints of dried fruit and eucalyptus.

Palate

Round, with flavours of honey, brioche and butter, the champagne ends with fresh ripe citrus aromas and a pleasant finish.

Food and wine pairing

Ideal as an aperitif, this champagne goes well with seafood, fish dishes and cheese.

Storage

The Extra Brut Réserve Grand cru Blanc de Blancs should be relished within 3 to 5 years.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve at the chilled temperature of 8°C.
