Winemaker Notes

The color is fine and bright, showing a pale golden hue with bronze tinges. A forward nose shows deliciously ripe aromas. Hints of flowers mingle with the main aromas of fresh pastry. The first impression is clear-cut, and the wine continues, fresh and lively, in an elegant mode. The flavors are very pure and evoke white peaches, small berry fruit and grapefruit. The finishing notes are lingering with a distinctly mineral edge. This is a wine to be drunk now for those who like Chardonnay, but it also can be cellared for a while.

This makes an ideal aperitif drink. It would also make a good match for dishes such as marinated salmon and scallops, roquette salad with sea-food, sole cooked with citrus fruit and a light vanilla sauce, oysters, or sushi.

This vintage blanc de blancs is very much in the relatively rich, but also elegant Deutz style. The almost tropical white fruits are balanced with vibrant, fresh acidity, and topped with a soft aftertaste that lingers with almonds and toast.

Connoisseurs' Guide
100% Chardonnay. This lovely Blanc de Blancs pretty much defines the genre. It is at once toasty, rich, chalky, citrusy, vital and well-integrated. Its bubbles are on the smallish, refined side and its long, crisp flavors quietly pile layer upon layer of nuanced complexity. We could drink this one from Monday to Sunday. Bring on the oysters.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2002 Brut Blanc De Blancs is an elegant, refined wine with layers of silky, perfumed fruit that blossom with notable purity and class. With air, notes of smoke, minerals and spices emerge to round out this beautifully poised Champagne. Other lots have shown a more masculine side to this wine, but this bottle is especially sublime. The 2002 Brut Blanc De Blancs should continue to develop nicely in bottle for years to come. Deutz’s Chardonnay comes from Avize, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Viller Marmery. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2022.

Wine Spectator
A touch cheesy in aroma, leading to lemon verbena, floral and pastry flavors. Displays finesse and intensity, with a lively structure. Best from 2009 through 2020. 350 cases imported.

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 characterized by a perfect harmony of finesse, elegant vinosity and complexity.

Sourcing from 300 hectares (approx. 615 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. William Deutz is made from the best pinots and chardonnays; Amour de Deutz is composed uniquely of the finest chardonnays ; finally there is Amour de 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.

Each blend, from the renowned Deutz Brut Classic, is recognized for its high quality and remarkable consistency. Year after year, each of them epitomizes the expertise and the passion of Maison Deutz for its finely-tuned champagnes.

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, . 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.
