- Biodynamic producer carving out textural and powerful wines
- Made using 92% grand & premier cru chardonnay with 8% pinot noir red wine from Aÿ
- Pair with some ocean trout. Salmon blinis are always a firm favourite with this style of Rosé.
How about this soft, red-fruited rosé, flowing on the palate with a creamy-mineral texture, cherry kernel deliciousness and framed by a little tannic grip on the finish. The pinot noir red wine addition accounts for just 8% and contributes notes of wild strawberry, anise and some spice. The majority of this wine is as you might have guessed, chardonnay sourced from Avize, Grauves and Cuis.
All of De Sousa wines are certified Organic and Biodynamic with careful consideration to their soil and manual handling of grapes at harvest.
The base vintage is from the 2014 harvest. Dosage sits at a reasonable 7 g/L. This remains unfined and unfiltered so a small deposit may occur.
