Winemaker's Notes:

Cuvée William Deutz Rosé is a glittering rose petal color, underscored by an abundant effervescence and an elegant bouquet with rich cherry aromas. The wine embraces the palate with supple generosity and expands into floral and fruity tones with hints of violet and wild strawberries. Elegant vinous notes with a pleasing subtlety in the lingering close. This slightly spicy, exquisitely fresh cuvée is perfect with grilled lobster, sushi, roast lamb and fresh goat cheese.
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.
