You are looking at a 100% Grand Cru chardonnay coming from excellent sites in Avize and Oger. All of De Sousa wines are certified Organic and 'Avec Les temps' or 'With time' is a vineyard in Biodynamic conversion. Fitting name really. As with all De Sousa wines, they have careful consideration to their soil and manual handling of grapes at harvest.
This has vibrant citrus fruit and chalky minerals and a subtle, textural richness. 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.
Coming from 4 Grand Cru parcels with 40% reserve wines added. This is Extra Brut at 5 g/L. This remains unfined and unfiltered so a small deposit may occur. Disgorged: 29 / 10 / 19
