This Cuvée originates from Grands Crus plots of the House and is made of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir".

Wines were harvested in 2009 on soils on which the Sousa put their amazing skills in practice to bring out the sugary richness, the maturity of acids by raising the soil’s life in biodynamic.

The Sousa named this wine Umami because in itself it is long, deep, velvety, mineral, tasty, which are great traits of character combined in a single Japanese word : UMAMI, that gathers the 4 base flavours : acidity, sourness, saltiness and sweetness.

This extra-brut Grand Cru Champagne is superb with a gourmet nose on brioche and spicy notes while the finish in mouth is lightly salted and lingers.

Colour : a bright gold.

Nose : great complexity.

To be served between 8 to 10°C as an aperitif or with fishes or shellfishes like lobster or caviar on lobster.

Avize, classified Grand Cru, is a land blessed by the gods, which gives birth to great Champagnes, especially when the winegrower and cellar master comes with his talent to complete what nature already gave him : Erick de Sousa.

Avize is both prestigious and generous : a land located at the heart of the Côte des Blancs, between two areas that are as prestigious : Cramant at the north and Oger at the south. Avize is also a Grand Cru vineyard exclusively, whose surface area is quite small : 263 hectares of Chardonnay variety with 20 ares in Pinot Noir. The vine is remarkably well exposed : east-south-east, this orientation and exposure being an essential criteria for the grape’s quality and their sanitary state during the whole maturation process.

The soil is entirely chalk, known to be Champagne’s best chalk, which contributes to a perfect draining for the vineyard. This unique setting avoids Chlorosis for the vine (water damage to the vine cause by stagnant humidity).

The De Sousa House is precisely settled in Avize since the 1950s when Antoine de Sousa, son of Portuguese immigrants, wed Zoémie Bonville, from a family of winegrowers set in Avize for several generations. Since 1986, Erick, their son, is at the head of their vineyard, a treasure he will transmit to his three children, Charlotte, Julie, and Valentin.

The vines in this vineyard are on average 50 years old, which gives to the grape a wide range of aromas and a great concentration. Vintages are vinified in barrels.
