Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The distinctive house style of elegance and finesse which has made Champagne Deutz one of the most respected of all Champagne houses, is reflected in this fine Blanc de Blancs Champagne. Forty percent of the grape supply is from Deutz' own vineyards, which rate 98 percent on the Champagne scale. Deutz' relationships with many of the vignerons that supply the fruit go back several generations.

Critical Acclaim

"The ethereal style that is the Deutz hallmark is shown to great effect in this apple-fresh Blanc de Blancs. There is a wonderful series of the crispest flavors allied to citrus and a tight texture."
93 Points

"Firm and juicy, with a creamy mineral undercurrent to the flavors of yellow pear, light pastry, candied lemon zest, apricot and spice set on refined texture. Well-focused, with a lovely finish that echoes the fruit character. Drink now through 2024. 170 cases imported."
92 Points

"The 2004 Brut Blanc de Blancs emerges from the glass with exotic beauty in its fruit. This rich, multi-faceted Champagne possesses dazzling complexity, with endless layers of fruit and a beautifully chiseled finish. This, too, is a fabulous effort from Deutz. The estate’s Blanc de Blancs is made principally from vineyards in Avize and Mesnil, with 20% coming from vineyards in Villers Marmery, Oger, Cramant and Oger. This is Lot: LA108D1998, disgorged July, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024."
92 Points

"Pale gold. High-pitched, mineral-driven aromas of candied lime, lemongrass, chamomile and chalky minerals, plus a suggestion of green tea. Bright, incisive and impressively pure, offering silky citrus and floral flavors underscored by dusty minerality and a touch of bitter pear skin. This is a baby but shows excellent potential, with strong finishing thrust and creamy persistence. I'd keep my hands off this for at least a few years. 92(+?) points."

Learn About Deutz Map ItMap It

Nestled into the slopes of the famous vineyards of Aÿ, France, are the picturesque stone buildings of Champagne Deutz, founded a century and a half ago (1838) by William Deutz and Pierre-Hubert Geldermann. The two immigrants from Napoleonic Prussia - Geldermann, a Champagne salesman, and Deutz, a negociant - opened an office with no vineyards. The cuvees were bought sur...

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. 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? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
