I tasted this excellent bubbly when I was recently in the UK at an upmarket pub. I asked for a glass of champagne when I only wanted to sip a drink and was shocked when I tasted it. Deutz makes a smooth, mellow champagne with hints of apricots and vanilla. I had to ask the bartender what I was drinking and found out that this is so good they made it their house champagne. Of course at 15 dollars a glass it wasn't cheap but worth it! On my return to the US I started looking around for Deutz and found the best price on Wine.com. I ordered two bottles for my daughter's graduation and wasn't disappointed. This will be our house champagne. If you like a bubbly with lots of bubbly bubbles that tastes like it's bottled for a Prince or Princess then this one's for you!
