Winemaker's Notes:

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 flavors of pears and sun-ripened apricots. Richly expressive and pleasantly soft.
My Notes:

About Deutz:

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 cuvées were bought sur lattes, already in the bottle, and were then disgorged, the dosage added and the wines labeled.

When René Deutz and Alfred Geldermann inherited the business from their fathers in the late 1860s, sales of their Champagne had been consistently rising for years. Deutz took its place among the great Houses of Champagne when it became a founding member of the Syndicat des Grandes Marques.

Today, Deutz upholds the traditions of fine champagne-making handed down through five generations. The past and present live contentedly together at Aÿ, merging tradition and technology to create elegant champagnes in the timeless Deutz style.
