De Sousa Caudalies Blanc De Blancs Brut Champagne

Aged in local oak, 10% new, made up of 50% Solera and 50% 15-17, all biodynamically farmed. The nose shows lemon, oak, cream, brazil nuts, and just there baking spices. The palate has a presence for a blanc de blancs with moderate acid and a flavor set of oak, citrus, cream, nut, and allspice. Lovely! D&M Tasting Notes

100% Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards along the Côte des Blancs. Caudalie is a term used to measure the length of a wine's finish, as in one caudalie equals one second. From vines over 50 years old, this cuvée is vinified entirely in oak barrels (15% of which are new) and blends 5 or 6 vintages. Pale gold color with green highlights. The nose is elegant, delicately punctuated by well-integrated notes of oak.

All of De Sousa's Champagnes are fermented using indigenous yeasts and go through full malolactic fermentation. Many of the wines are fermented and aged in enamel-lined steel tanks. Since 1995, however, he has fermented the wines from his oldest vines in 225-liter oak barrels. In the cellars, riddling is still done by hand, along with an extra shaking of the bottle on its lees deposit, which provides even greater concentration. Production stands at 70,000 to 75,000 bottles per year. Importer Notes
