Champagne de Sousa 3A Grand Cru NV (6-Pack)
**Sold as a 6-Pack**
Pale gold in colour tinged with copper highlights, this champagne boasts intense, fine bubbles. It is dense and full, a sign of great richness, and leaves lovely legs along the side of the glass.
The nose is flattering, with typical notes of Chardonnay such as lemon, pineapple, and especially mango, heightened by butteriness from its oak barrel ageing. Aromas of red berries such as blackcurrant and raspberry, typical of Pinot Noir, can also be detected, along with hints of liquorice.
The vinosity of the wine on the nose is echoed on the palate by the presence of Pinot Noir, which lends a velvety, unctuous smoothness to the finesse, freshness and minerality of the Chardonnay. A well-balanced wine that will delight all wine lovers who appreciate unique cuvées.
Located in the historical heart of La Côte des Blancs, the village of Avize has benefited from the Grand Cru special status since 1908. It’s actually in the centre of Côte des Blancs, at Avize, that Chardonnay is best represented.
Not as well-known as blended Champagnes, 100% Chardonnay, Champagnes ,called ‘Blanc de Blancs’ in French, are highly prized by experts who enjoy their delicate aromas, finesse and minerality.
De Sousa vines are grown using organic methods that are in harmony with Nature and the environment and which give the vine a natural balance, This develops and reinforces the natural defences of the vine and allows it to express its maximum quality potential.
