Description

An alluring Rosé champagne with a fruity and refined expression

The estate

At the end of the First World War, the "poilu" Manuel De Sousa, a member of the Portuguese Expeditionary Force, left his native land and settled in Avize, France. Sadly passing away due to an illness before reaching the age of thirty, this hard worker left his wife and children behind. Fortunately, his son Antoine married Zoémie Bonville, the daughter of a winegrower, a few years later, and their union gave rise to the De Sousa Champagne House. For three generations now, the continuous search for excellence and respect for both nature and the environment has shone through the estate’s spirit. At the helm of the family-owned business since 1986, Erick De Sousa is committed to driving forward the work of his predecessors while ensuring that the values of passion and tradition are passed down for many generations to come.

The wine

The Caudalies Rosé Grand Cru champagne stems from vineyards that are over 60 years old and rest on chalky soils in the heart of two great Champagne terroirs, the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. The vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and 100% vinified in oak barrels. The dosage is 5 g/litre.

The blend

Chardonnay (90% from Avize)

Pinot Noir (10% from Aÿ).
