Winemaker's Notes:

The color is fine and bright, showing a pale golden hue with bronze tinges. A forward nose shows deliciously ripe aromas. Hints of flowers mingle with the main aromas of fresh pastry. The first impression is clear-cut, and the wine continues, fresh and lively, in an elegant mode. The flavors are very pure and evoke white peaches, small berry fruit and grapefruit. The finishing notes are lingering with a distinctly mineral edge. This is a wine to be drunk now for those who like Chardonnay, but it also can be cellared for a while.

This makes an ideal aperitif drink. It would also make a good match for dishes such as marinated salmon and scallops, roquette salad with sea-food, sole cooked with citrus fruit and a light vanilla sauce, oysters, or sushi.

About Deutz:

Since 1838, CHAMPAGNE DEUTZ, one of the oldest members of the former and prestigious Association of Grandes Marques, has been making champagnes of a distinctive style characterised by a perfect harmony of finesse, elegant vinosity and complexity. Sourcing from more 245 hectares (approx. 600 acres) of vineyards, amongst the finest of Champagne’s crus, as well as a rigorous selection of the choice bunches, allow Deutz to use only top quality grapes. The wines are slowly and carefully aged in the cool hush of the 3 kilometres of the House cellars which have been carved in the chalky soil of the famous historic village of Aÿ. The “DEUTZ trio Prestige” comprises three prestige cuvées, each with its very distinct personality. Cuvée William Deutz is made from the best pinots and chardonnays; Cuvée Amour de Deutz is composed uniquely of the finest chardonnays; finally there is Cuvée William Deutz Rosé. In each of these styles, Maison DEUTZ shows the full extent of its know-how and its attachment to precise, finely tuned wines. DEUTZ champagnes are distributed all over the world in first class restaurants, fine food shops and specialized wine shops.
