Description

The cuvee Tradition from the De Sousa champagne house is blended from several different vintages, with Pinot Noir (40%) bringing smoothness, Pinot Meunier (10%) adding vinosity, and Chardonnay (50%) contributing freshness.

The wines are all from the terroirs of Avize, Grauves and Mardeuil. The majority of the vines owned by De Sousa are over 30 years of age, and the root systems of these old vines descend more than 25 meters into the earth to extract the mineral salts and trace elements they need from the substrata and the chalk layers.

When the roots go deep, the influence of the terroir is greater than that of the grape variety, and the deeper the roots go the more nutrients they extract resulting in greater grape quality.
