Ay, France

deutz-racks Since 1838 Deutz has been based in the Grand Cru village of Ay, just west of Epernay. By the late 19th Century Deutz became a much sought after Champagne consumed by many heads of state and royalty. In 1983 the Rouzaud family, owners of Louis Roederer, purchased Deutz and installed the talented Fabrice Rosset as the CEO. The Deutz style continues to be understated, refined, and made to exacting standards. In addition to their property in Ay, Deutz has acquired vineyards in the Cotes des Blanc and have secured long term contracts with their grower partners, all of which practice sustainable vineyard management. Mr Rosset was responsible for engineering the success of Roederer’s premium cuvee Crystal, and has introduced his own line of prestige cuvees, Amour de Deutz. Under the leadership of Mr Rosset, Deutz is again a much sought after brand with significant market presence in Europe and the US. Winery Website

Full-bodied, sophisticated and nicely mature, this is quite complex and distinctive in character. The rich texture and expanding mousse make it luxurious and the lingering finish makes it memorable. - Wine Spectator

Delicate floral and tangerine notes and bright acidity play off the flavors of raspberry, smoked almond and biscuit in this well-knit and creamy rosé. A chalky mineral underpinning shows on the finish.
deutz-brut-millBrut Millésimé
Based on Premier and Grand Cru grapes, except for the Pinot Meunier. It is a blend of 65% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 5% rounding Meunier. The 2009 opens pretty aromatic on the clear, pure and delicate nose, where pineapple aromas are displayed and intermixed with chalky flavors. Pure, complex and finesse-full on the palate, this is a very delicate, light and elegant cuvée with a good intensity of sweet cherry fruit and mineral flavors. This is well structured and persistent in the finish.
deutz-rose-millBrut Rosé Millésimé
The color of the Deutz rosés are always very special in their brilliant salmon color. The bouquet is delicately and invitingly fruity (pomegranate and raspberry.) Full-bodied and highly elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, fruit intense, slightly sweet, well balanced and structured, persistent Champagne of great finesse.

Balanced and creamy, with citrus and toast accents, and flavors of crunchy pear, spring blossom, marzipan and spice. A finely detailed version, delivering a fresh, minerally finish.

A rich, vivacious Champagne, with toasted brioche and smoked walnut accents, this offers flavors of black cherry pâte de fruit, pickled ginger and poached apricot on a lively bead. Shows fine minerally cut to the lingering finish.
deutz-amour-roseAmour de Deutz Rosé Brut Millésimé
Dressed in a beautifully bright and brillant salmon rosé color and further characterized by a creamy effervescence creating an extremely noble bead chain, a ridiculously pure, subtle, refined and delicate aroma of red currant, white nectarines, coconut milk, wild flowers (alpine rose) and berries as well as densely woven minerals is revealed on the nose. On the palate this light-hearted yet full-flavored and persistent prestige Champagne reveals a delicate, fresh, racy, tightly yet stimulating mineral character, which is generous enough to admit refined, bright, red fruit flavors.
