Winemaker Notes

Within the family of Deutz Cuvees, the Bruit Millesime has an upright character that is both powerful and elegant. The color is bright and the bubbles are persistent. The entry is clear-cut and stylish, with the palate then showing flavors of fruit flowers, spices, and mild tobacco. It is built and beautifully balanced.

Decanter
Amour was created by Deutz’s long-standing managing director, Fabrice Rosset. It's a prestige blanc de blancs which is only made in the best years, so there was little surprise when Deutz produced an Amour from the highly acclaimed 2008 vintage. This really has it all: freshness, extract, power, balance and concentration. Already, the primary nose shows chamomile and iris, while the palate is crammed with white fruits, nougat, chamomile, candied fruit and minerals. Deutz’s signature spine-tingling acidity balances out the weight and creamy texture of this generous, well structured fizz. It's fabulous as an aperitif now but it will also develop well into old age as a gastronomic wine with delicate seafood dishes. 40,000 bottles produced. Drinking Window 2019 - 2040

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The citrus-colored 2008 Amour de Deutz Brut Millésime is still yeasty on the nose, but very clear and elegant on the palate. This is a super pure and mineral, well-balanced Millésime with a long, intense and persistent finish. This is full of tension and finesse. A great wine.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This wine is rich and surprisingly full-bodied. It comes from a great Champagne vintage, giving it both intensity and an acidity built for longterm aging. This half-bottle version is filling out, showing almond flavors yet retaining its citrus edge. Drink from 2019.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
An elegant version, this is sleek and harmonious, offering a finely detailed mousse and expressive hints of mango and passion fruit layered with flavors of glazed apricot, pastry cream and candied ginger. Minerally finish. Drink now through 2030.
JS 92
James Suckling
Really fresh and lively, showing peaches and lemon curd, but with a touch of lime sorbet, too. There's fresh, toasty-hazelnut complexity wrapped in a subtle layer on the palate, which concludes with a bright, pastry finish. Pretty Champagne. Drink or hold.

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.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
