Note this is a 6 pack of the De Sousa Tradition. The club discount does not apply to this product.
Fine bead, golden in colour, white peach, Williams pear and light accents of stone fruit. The base wine for this is 2014 with a few years in the cellar and fresh release from De Sousa, this is vibrant, energetic with juicy red fruit coming from the pinot noir and soft, supple acidity. There is a generosity to the wine and underlying minerality that provides great length and holds its own.
The Brut Tradition has spent 3 years on lees with 40% of reserve wines and all the fruit is sourced from vines with an average age of 45 years old. All top notch fruit from the Grand Cru villages of Avize, Cramant & Oger for the chardonnay, Aÿ and Ambonnay for the pinot noir and the 'Autre Cru' of Mardeuil for the meunier. To finish this has a dosage of 7 grams per litre and is a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier.
You have just seen the tip of the iceberg with this producer as they make very exciting champagnes, more to come.
