Description

An exceptional Brut champage that blends freshness and harmony

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 thirty, 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 Brut Tradition champagne stems from the finest terroirs in Champagne, namely the Marne Valley, the Côte des Blancs and the Epernay region. The 25 to 30-year-old vines are deeply rooted in soils composed of clay and chalk. In order to preserve this precious vineyard, Maison De Sousa manages its vineyard according to organic and biodynamic viticultural practices.

Vinification and ageing

Following manual harvesting, the grapes are vinified in vats.

The blend

Chardonnay (50%)

Pinot Noir (40%)

Pinot Meunier (10%).

Maison De Sousa’s Brut Tradition: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The colour is clear, with green reflections. The effervescence is delicate and intense, revealing an endless foam.

Nose

The bouquet opens with a dominant floral note, subtly revealing mimosa, mixed with aromas of ripe fruit and citrus.

Palate

The Brut Tradition Champagne is characterised by a lively attack. This champagne presents a beautiful harmony between the freshness of its aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits and a generous character thanks to notes of red fruits.

Food and wine pairing

The Brut Tradition Champagne will complement seafood and fish dishes as well as white meat. This champagne will also lend itself beautifully to your aperitifs.

Storage

This champagne can be cellared for 3 to 5 years.

Service

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