Description

Cuvée des Caudalies Rosé from De Sousa & Fils is a magnificent blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% de Pinot Noir from vines growing in Grand Cru terroirs.

The Chardonnay is matured in small 2 to 8 year old barrels for six months with regular stirring to obtain its characteristic smooth elegance.

The Pinot Noir ages in 5 year old barrels for one year to give it extra structure. It is said that a wine whose aromas persist in the mouth has ‘good length’. This persistence is measured in ‘caudalies’. One caudalie is equal to approximately one second.

De Sousa have been established in the heart of the prestigious Grand Cru terroirs of the Côte des Blancs for three generations.

Their policy is to maintain their old vines and to use organic fertilizers.
