Champagne de Sousa Grand Cru Réserve Blanc de Blancs
Michelle and Erick De Sousa produce brilliant Champagnes from their vineyards in Avize, Cramant and Oger. Their Chardonnay dominated vineyards are located in the very best terroirs these 3 villages have to offer.
An authentic, singular Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay, a white grape with white juice.
Although less widely known to the public than blended Champagnes, blancs de blancs (100% Chardonnay) are particularly sought-after by connoisseurs, who appreciate their delicate aromas as well as their vibrant freshness.
“Brut Réserve” is a blend of two or three different years and contains at least 25% reserve wine.
Tasting:Colour: Golden, with green overtones. Leaves a long-lasting “necklace” of small bubbles at the surface. Impressive limpidity.
The intense nose is evidence of a striking maturity. In addition to notes of fresh roasted coffee, eucalyptus and dried fruit, there is a very expressive floral character.
The palate is very round with honeyed accents. While the dosage is apparent, the result is well-balanced. The finish is long and delightfully refreshing.
