De Sousa

La Maison De Sousa is located in the commune of Avize in the heart of the prestigious Côte des blancs. It was founded by Antoine De Sousa in the 1950s through marriage to a daughter from a winegrowing family. 

Today, Erick De Sousa is one of the region's most talented winemakers, favoring a sustainable approach to his vineyards in order to produce authentic Champagnes of great purity. 

What is the history of Maison De Sousa?

In the aftermath of the First World War, Manuel De Sousa, originally from the province of Braga and part of the Portuguese contingent sent to the front, decided to settle in Champagne at Avize with his wife. His son Antoine married Zoémie Bonville, from a long-established family of winegrowers in the region. A success story that has never ceased to endure. Their son Erick took over in 1986, demonstrating exceptional talent in raising the vineyard to a new level of excellence Rare. Today, he is gradually passing on his heritage and passion to his three children: Charlotte, Julie and Valentin, who will continue to write the pages of history.

Description De Sousa Cuvée UMAMI 2009 Magnum.

Wines were harvested in 2009 on soils on which the Sousa put their amazing skills in practice to bring out the sugary richness, the maturity of acids by raising the soil’s life in biodynamic.

The Sousa named this wine Umami because in itself it is long, deep, velvety, mineral, tasty, which are great traits of character combined in a single Japanese word : UMAMI, that gathers the 4 base flavours : acidity, sourness, saltiness and sweetness.

This extra-brut Grand Cru Champagne is superb with a gourmet nose on brioche and spicy notes while the finish in mouth is lightly salted and lingers.

Colour : a bright gold.

Nose : great complexity.

To be served between 8 to 10°C as an aperitif or with fishes or shellfishes like lobster or caviar on lobster.
