Description

Cuvee 3A from De Sousa & Fils is a unique blend as it is created from 3 prestigious Grand Cru terroirs : Avize, Aÿ and Ambonnay.

The Chardonnays (50% of the blend) come from Avize, a village in the heart of the Côte des Blancs where the purest chalk terroirs in Champagne are to be found. They grow on old vines of more than 50 years of age and are vinified in 225 liter oak barrels.

Half of the Pinots Noirs come from Aÿ, situated between the Vallée de la Marne and the Montagne de Reims, once again from small berried old vines which give very specific ripe fruit aromas.

The other half come from Ambonnay, in the Montagne de Reims where De Sousa own low yielding vines, planted in the 50s, which give great grape maturity and concentration.
