Citrus fruits, nectarines and dried stone fruits combine here with notes of brioche, roasted hazelnuts, toast and fresh highland coffee, in which the scent of fennel and camomile mingle. The de Sousa strikes a precise balance between the ripe aromas of honey, toast and ripe stone fruit and the mineral freshness and clarity expected of a Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs.

Wine

Champagne De Sousa et Fils, Réserve Brut Grand Cru

To the wine

100 % Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards with a réserve content of at least 25 %.

Color

strong golden yellow with light green reflexes

Nose

The Réserve Brut is an opulent and classic Champagne in the best sense. Citrus fruits, nectarines and dried stone fruits combine here with notes of brioche, roasted hazelnuts, toast and fresh highland coffee, in which the scent of fennel and chamomile mingle.

Palate

What the inviting aroma of this champagne promises, the Réserve Brut fully delivers on the palate. De Sousa's style of stirring the yeast again and again during the aging in the barrel makes the Réserve Brut creamy and soft - and that without losing power and refreshing acidity. The de Sousa manages to precisely balance the ripe aromas of honey, toast and ripe stone fruit with the mineral freshness and clarity that one expects from a Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. So here you have a Blanc de Blancs that will pick anyone up from the big brands and forever be rooted in the camp of Champagne's independent houses and winemakers.
