Marks and reviews
At the end of the First World War, the "poilu" Manuel De Sousa, a member of the Portuguese Expeditionary Force, left his native land and settled in Avize, France. Sadly passing away due to an illness before reaching the age of thirty, this hard-worker left his wife and children behind. Fortunately, his son Antoine married Zoémie Bonville, the daughter of a winegrower, a few years later, and their union gave rise to the De Sousa Champagne House. For three generations now, the continuous search for excellence and respect for both nature and the environment has shone through the estate’s spirit. At the helm of the family-owned business since 1986, Erick De Sousa is committed to driving forward the work of his predecessors while ensuring that the values of passion and tradition are passed down for many generations to come.
This Brut Tradition champagne stems from the finest terroirs in Champagne, namely the Marne Valley, the Côte des Blancs and the Epernay region. The 25 to 30-year-old vines are deeply rooted in soils composed of clay and chalk. In order to preserve this precious vineyard, Maison De Sousa manages its vineyard according to organic and biodynamic viticultural practices.
