SPOTLIGHT WINE: NV DOMAINE DE SOUSA “TRADITION” BRUT (Champagne, FRA)
We’ve made it through Christmas, the start of Hanukkah and a festive holiday weekend. But the 2016 drinking isn’t quite over yet! UG is here to make sure you’ve got the best wine in your bottle, no matter your price point.
The Champagne House of De Sousa has been making sparkling wine since the 1950’s. Their vines dig down into chalky soil, and the resulting grapes produce a fresh-tasting wine with salinity and minerality. They hand-harvest their grapes as late in the season as possible, for full fruit and aromas. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation to provide them with a smooth and balanced finish. The De Sousa’s blend the wine of several vintages together to maintain quality from vintage to vintage.
The “Tradition” Brut has delicate and long-lasting bubbles, a floral nose, and a combination of bright citrus and warm honey on the palate. Despite the price, this Champagne expresses all the nuances of more expensive bottles from the region. So if you want to drink the real stuff on New Year’s Eve, or anytime, this is a great bottle to stock up on. And at 25% off for just $33.75 a bottle, the price is truly right!
