Maison Deutz - distinctive and traditional Champagnes

Category: Wine Makers | 0 Replies

deutz_champagne.jpgWhile Champagne Deutz may not be particularly well-known, it's beauty lies in it's origins as a small, traditional and classic Champagne house making distinctive champagnes marked by finesse, elegance and complexity dating back to 1838.  Unlike the four major mass-produced Champagne brands, it is still family run and retains a quality and attention to detail that is appreciated by the consumer who knows what they are looking for.  According to brand ambassador Eric Foucault, "those who understand the qualities of Champagne.....recognise the elegance and will come back to it time and time again."

Their vintage and non-vintage Champagnes consistently score 90-92 points with all of the key wine reviewers, publications, magazines and websites, having become known for excellent wines at reasonable prices, while consumers appreciate Champagne Deutz as a welcome change to the usual suspects such as Moet, Mumm, Tattinger and .  

The secret to a great champagne?  It's in the finesse of it's sparkle - tiny bubbles and creamy on the mouth with a long finish and good aftertaste versus big, gassy and acidic.

"The NV Brut Classic is a pretty, entry-level wine.  Warm, generous fruit comes together beautifully in this rich, expansive, mid-weight Champagne.  The bouquet, texture and purity of the finish are all first-rate.  The Brut Classic is equal parts Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.  Like all Deutz Champagnes, it undergoes full malolactic fermentation." - Wine Advocate

"The NV Brut Rose is fabulous. A sweet, open bouquet leads to expressive fruit in this rich, textured wine. The Deutz Rose is a serious wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, but it also has more than enough power in reserve to drink well at the dinner table. Floral notes reappear to round out the finish. The blend is 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay." - Wine Spectator 

An ideal apertif wine, Deutz' Rosé is a good match for seafood and sushi - elegant in style, with tiny bubbles.

"On the palate, it is ample and captivating, both structured and very elegant.  Not to be missed for its lively, rich and thoroughbred character." - Luca Gardini, World's Best Sommelier 2010

"The 1998 Cuvee William Deutz flows from the glass with compelling layers of flowers, apricots, succulent pears, minerals and smoke. This Champagne offers a gorgeous combination of mineral-driven freshness with a richly-textured core of fruit. The Cuvee William Deutz should continue to drink beautifully for at least another decade." - 93 Points The Wine Advocate
