A golden hue with brilliant edges. Very fine bead. Fine and expressive aromas on the nose, which shows fully ripe stone fruit alongside dried fruit.
Quite full-bodied on the palate, with flavours of pears and sun-ripened apricots. Richly expressive and pleasantly soft.
The finish is long and generous, with the characteristic volume that shows on Deutz' vintage wines in the best years.
Full of character, the Brut Millésimé 2000 will lend zest to white meat dishes, like veal in a cream sauce, liver mousse, crab flan, risotto with white truffles, and all full-flavoured fish such as skate, sea-bass, or anglerfish.
"This is certainly rich, packed with youthful green- and white-fruit flavors, but it still has that seductive elegance that is the hallmark of Deutz. Here is a wine that definitely needs aging. It has richness but there is still a raw edge."
"Well-knit and intense, this offers graphite, bread dough and lemon flavors on a vibrant structure. Light-bodied for the vintage, yet balanced and long. Drink now through 2012."
