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 des Caudalies 2010.

Under the watchful gaze of a third generation of champagne winegrowers, the grape harvest from old vines that are more than 50 years old was made entirely by hand for this Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs wine raised 100% in small oak barrels, among which 15% in new barrels for 10 months.

The colour is a bright gold.

To the nose : after more than 8 years of ageing, wide range of aromas going from ripe yellow fruit like peach, apricot, quince with touches of honey and gingerbread.

The taste overturns the range of fruit aromas felt in the nose, from vine peach to gingerbread.

Will fit perfectly with shellfishes, white meats or simply as an aperitif with foie gras toasts, grilled lobster skewers or grilled red mullet.

The cellar master sees in this enjoyable wine a potential of ageing of 15 to 20 years in a dark cellar, away from noise, bottle laid flat.
