Winemaker's Notes:

Powerful nose, rich and complex, that shows aromas reminiscent of baked apples, together with light and pleasant hints of preserved ginger and nutmeg, amongst others.

The entry is crisp and the wine then develops considerable finesse, also revealing delicate flavors of sultanas that evoke the charms of a sunny place.

With its deliciously rich and savory finish, the Cuvée William Deutz 1998 gives one the impression of a wine that has opened up fairly rapidly, showing a full range of secondary aromas that are usually found in Champagnes that have been aged for a longer period.

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.
