You are looking at a 100% Grand Cru chardonnay coming from excellent sites in Avize, Oger, Les Mesnil Sur, Oger, Cramant & Chouilly. All of De Sousa wines are certified Organic and Biodynamic with careful consideration to their soil and manual handling of grapes at harvest.
If you enjoy champagne that has charm and vibrant, fresh appeal, then keep reading. This has ripe citrus fruit with clear-cut minerality and a textural richness underpinned by older vines (around 45 years). We love wines like this because they are easy to enjoy and they truly deliver. Think along the lines of nougat, almond, lemon-curd with herbal notes.
The base vintage is from the 2014 harvest with between 25-30% reserve wines added. Dosage sits at a reasonable 7 g/L. This remains unfined and unfiltered so a small deposit may occur.
