Alcohol By Volume: 12.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The most "classical" of the Deutz cuvees is far from mundane. The three different champagne grapes are blended in equal and unchanging proportions, ensuring it shows perfect harmony. Its golden color scintillates in the glass, with a fine stream of bubbles rising gracefully to the surface. The first impressions on the nose are mellow and reminiscent of acacia flowers, confectionery, Reinette apples and brioche. The wine then gains in volume and its silky texture reveals a successful balance between the freshness of Chardonnay, t he fruitiness and structure of Pinot Noir and a touch of vinosity from the Pinot Meunier

Critical Acclaim

"Well-knit and fresh, with a minerally base supporting delicate flavors of persimmon, green almond, currant and pastry. Presents a clean, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2016. 2,000 cases imported. "
90 Points

"Light yellow. Toasty lees, poached pear and lemon rind on the pungent nose. Offers an array of sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and becomes spicier with air. The lemon and lees notes come back on the broad, clear finish."
90 Points

"This wine's concentrated flavors focus on mineral richness rather than freshness, lemon pith rather than zest. Its green apple and pear fruit blends into the chalkiness, all of a piece. For wood-roasted oysters."
90 Points

"The NV Brut Classic is a pretty, entry-level wine. Warm, generous fruit comes together beautifully in this rich, expansive, mid-weight Champagne. The bouquet, texture and purity of the finish are all first-rate. The Brut Classic is equal parts Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Like all Deutz Champagnes, it undergoes full malolactic fermentation. "
90 Points

"The Deutz style, with its lilting, dancing mouthfeel, is well illustrated by this non-vintage cuvée. It is bright and fruity, with crisp apple and pear fruits and tight acidity. but showing some signs of good bottle aging as well."

I tasted this excellent bubbly when I was recently in the UK at an upmarket pub. I asked for a glass of champagne when I only wanted to sip a drink and was shocked when I tasted it. Deutz makes a smooth, mellow champagne with hints of apricots and vanilla. I had to ask the bartender what I was drinking and found out that this is so good they made it their house champagne. Of course at 15 dollars a glass it wasn't cheap but worth it! On my return to the US I started looking around for Deutz and found the best price on Wine.com. I ordered two bottles for my daughter's graduation and wasn't disappointed. This will be our house champagne. If you like a bubbly with lots of bubbly bubbles that tastes like it's bottled for a Prince or Princess then this one's for you!

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
