A favourite Christmas drink with its effervescent fizz, champagne will truly sparkle this year with the De SOUSA Brut Tradition.
This renowned champagne is a well-balanced combination of grape varieties: 50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Black and 10% Pinot Meunier. It also includes 20% ‘reserve wines’, which give it a rounded and rich finish characteristic of big champagnes.
The balance is also perfect when accompanying food: completely vinified in vats, it brings freshness and liveliness to the table, from the aperitif to the Christmas pudding! Its floral notes from white flowers, citrus and ripe pears gives it a lively and smooth palate and a round and creamy texture that goes perfectly with the finest dishes.
This generous, beautifully elegant champagne has proved a great success in more than 25 countries. What better way to brighten up these end-of-year celebrations?
Based in the Champagne region for three generations, the De Sousa family knows how to get the best out of its soil, its grape varieties and its wine production. Profoundly attached to this land at the heart of the Côte des Blancs, with its Grands Crus (Avize, Oger, Cramant, Le Mesnil sur Oger), the De Sousa family has always strived to preserve the authenticity and typicality of this region.
It is this driving force that gives champagne from this great house a recognizable character all of its own, due as much to its old vines (many are over 50 years old) as to its naturally low yields and traditional know-how
(use of small oak barrels, extended aging in typical chalk cellars, …).
And not content just to demand the best for its champagnes, the De SOUSA Family also wants the best for the environment and manages its vines
organically and biodynamically. A requirement that has given the De SOUSA champagne house a reputation that has spread far beyond its frontiers and is now sought after by the best wine shops and the grandest hotels and restaurants in the world.
