Winemaker's Notes:

Made exclusively from Pinot Noir, 80% of these grapes come from the Montagne de Reims area, and the remaining 20% come from the Marne Valley. The specific style and color is obtained by the addition of 9% of red wine, whose Pinot Noir grapes come from two plots on the Aÿ hillside called "La Côte" and "Meurtet", both that have perfect exposure. After 4 years aging in the Deutz cellars, its aromas have perfectly blended, and the Brut Rosé has a very subtle nose and a palate that shows remarkable power.

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.
