Winemaker's Notes

The wine has a pale gold color with sparkling reflections and a delicate, constant effervescence.

The nose has very refined aromas bringing to mind morning dew and springtime. It is tied together with subtle scents of lime flowers, acacia, hawthorn, and delicate fresh citrus fruit.

On the palate, the attack is fresh and straightforward. The wine develops the same notes as the nose, however there is a stronger presence of fruit and moderate mineral notes.

The finish is beautifully fresh, extending the pleasurable taste of this very elegant vintage.

Food Affinity: Preferably served as an aperitif, it pairs well with oysters, shellfish, sushi, lobster, and white fish. It also goes marvelously with grilled prawn salad and peas or seafood ravioli.

"The nose of Deutz's 1998 Blanc de Blancs brought to mind the sumptuously ripe and juicy Royal Riviera Pears produced and marketed by Oregon's Harry & David. Armed with superb richness and depth, this wine is Puligny-Montrachet-like in its glorious pear and floral flavors. Notes of toasty yeast appear in its exceptionally long, silky finish."

An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better?
