Regarding the Champagne De Sousa Cuvée Caudalies
The Caudalies Cuvée from the House of DE SOUSA is a blanc de blancs Grand Cru champagne. It is one of the jewels of the House of De Sousa. The name of the cuvée "Caudalies" evokes the measure of the aromatic persistence of a wine during a tasting. It is made only from grapes from old vines over 50 years old, in biodynamic and organic viticulture on the great terroir of Avize, in the Côte des Blancs.
It is vinified 100% in oak barrels, including 8% new barrels. Result of a blend of 50% of the base wine of the year of harvest and 50% of the blend in solera started in 1995. This champagne will seduce you with its freshness and elegance. This champagne dosed in extra-Brut, is of a very great smoothness. The palate is harmonious, highlighting very greedy brioche notes while the chalky minerality of the Avize terroir is fully expressed with finesse. This is a fine example of Grand Cru Chardonnay, dense and concentrated, which will benefit from a good aeration.
This 100% Chardonnay champagne, extra brut with a low sugar content of only 5 g/L, will be perfect with very delicate dishes, fish or shellfish, but also with duck foie gras or caviar toasts.
