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 Deutz Brut Rosé 2005 is produced exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes, from the Montagne de Reims (80 percent) and the Vallée de la Marne (20 perent). The specific nature of its style and its appearance comes from the addition during blending of 10 percent red wine from parcels of old vines from the Côte d'Aÿ, "La Pelle" and "Froide Terre," and a parcel of land in Mareuil-sur-Ay known as "Le Clos," which produces fruit of a maturity to guarantee the delicate aromatic complexity of the final blend.

To the eye, the appearance is striking: an antique pink color, with hints of orange. The sparkle is fine, lively and regular. The attractive frothy bead adds to the appetizing appearance. The nose develops aromas of Montmorency cherries in eau de vie, strawberries and griotte cherries, enhanced by floral notes. A precise, full and ample flavor, complemented by the richness of full-bodied, ripe fruit, emulating a high class Pinot Noir. With a dense, tight texture, leaving in its wake lingering notes of great elegance.

A gastronomic champagne, it is the perfect accompaniment for salmon with mushrooms, beef wellington, duck in cranberry sauce, rack of lamb or pigeon stuffed with cherries. Turning to Asian cuisine, it is a sublime accompaniment for small kebabs or some sushi.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense red-copper hue with a persistent, dancing, bead. Forward aromas of rose petal, red licorice, cranberry and freshly kneaded bread dough. Sweet/tart red fruit flavors joined by a cherry pit-like astringency. Very crisp, youthful finish with enduring red fruit impressions."
94 Points

"Pale pink with a strong bead. Primary, yeasty aromas of redcurrant and strawberry, with a strong mineral underpinning. Fresh red berries and spicecake on the palate, with notes of smoky lees and minerals gaining strength in the glass. Awfully young, with strong finishing cut and a persistent note of wild strawberry. Give this wine a few more years of aging before popping the cork."
91 Points

"Following the elegant Deutz tradition, this wine has a character that is light as a feather, but still anchored into vivid red fruits and tight acidity, leavened by a softness. The final taste is soft, but well integrated."
90 Points

"This fresh, strawberry- and watermelon-flavored rosé is light on its feet and nicely balanced. Ideal as an aperitif, or with canapés. Drink now through 2012. 200 cases imported. "
89 Points

"The 2005 Brut Rose is a big, rich, boisterous wine packed with super-ripe fruit. In 2005 the Brut Rose comes across as a touch heavy and over-ripe with limited freshness, although with time in the glass the wine finds better balance and a measure of focus. This bottle was disgorged on February 5, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017. "

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...

Learn About Rosé

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
