- Located in the heart of the prestigious Côte des Blancs, Domaine de Sousa has been making wine for three generations, on renowned Grands Crus sites (Avize, Cramant, and Oger). Their cultivation of older vines, use of organic fertilizer, and respect for the terroir have produced exceptional quality wines at reasonable prices since 1986.
Tradition is a blend of several vintages. It owes its roundness to Pinot Noir (40%), its vinosity to the Pinot Meunier (10%), and its freshness to the Chardonnay (50%).
Clear and brilliant, with shades of green, this champagne forms a thick, tight head when poured and leaves a delicate, long-lasting "necklace" of bubbles at the surface. The nose is elegant and floral but also very expressive and intense, revealing a certain finesse. There's a touch of mimosa, followed by citrus and ripened fruit. On the palate the attack is clear-cut, and the Champagne's bright freshness is complemented by notes of warm honey. The finish is pleasant and average in length. (from the distributor)
