De Sousa

Today, finally, we could not be more pleased to announce the addition of De Sousa to our lineup. In fact, De Sousa made the final decision very easy for us when he put together 3 special bottlings. These limited 50-75 case bottlings are exactly what we were looking for. Erick knew it and sealed the deal by making available to us a tiny quantity of his luxury "Cuvée des Caudalies." One taste of that awesome wine was totally compelling. The fact that we get tiny bits of these custom De Sousa bottlings makes the whole deal even sweeter. We have always lusted after an Avize. We are famously served on the Côte de Blancs by Alain Robert and Michel Turgy in Mesnil and by Lancelot-Royer in Cramant. An Avize domaine rounds out the holy trinity perfectly. Anyone would be especially pleased if they consulted old reference books on Champagne wherein the now famous Côte de Blancs was called the "Côte d’Avize," at least until the middle of the 18th century. All of its vineyards are "Grand Cru" and rated at 100%. Though very similar to its neighbors on either side, Avize Chardonnay always seems to be more powerful and penetrating than Cramant or Mesnil versions. His wines are unfiltered and completely natural.
