Zoemie De Sousa is the work of the fabulous people at Champagne De Sousa but made with fruit from vineyards they do not own. All of the land is worked by the De Sousa team and treated with the same respect as the vineyards they own.
The vineyards for this wine are located on the Grand Cru classified vineyards of Avize, Cramant and Oger. An ideal south-eastern exposure combined with grape maturity and a chalky soil lends these wines their characteristic refinement and
There is a silky mellowness, melded with definite power in this Champagne, as well as aromas of ripe pear and brioche.
Champagne – A wine region of France approximately 160km East of Paris. It is also the name of the wines produced from the area. Most famously it is a sparkling wine that undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle and is aged on lees. Although there is the occasional still wine you can find around particularly Pinot Noir. The fantastically named Bouzy Rouge is one such example. There are very few single vintage, single vineyard, single variety Champagnes (I can only name one and it was produced only 47 times between 1900 and 1999). Why? Due to the large area the region covers, and the challenging weather the houses blended wines to produce a consistent and reliable product every year. This is where the growers come in. They relish the chance to show off vintage variation and small plot wines.
