Winemaker Notes

Within the family of Deutz cuvees, the Brut 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 well built and beautifully balanced.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
The latest vintage release from this producer is dominated by Pinot Noir, rich and with considerable aging potential. For now, it is mineral, zesty and tightly textured, a concentrated wine offering white and citrus fruits and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and acidity. Drink from 2021.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A hint of salinity underscores the fresh and appealing range of crushed white cherry, pastry and candied pink grapefruit zest flavors in this finely knit, creamy Champagne. Bright and elegant. Drink now through 2027.
JS 92
James Suckling
Attractively refined and gently minerally aromas make for an attractive, fresh impression on the nose, along with lemon, apricot and light cherry fruits. The palate has good depth of flavor in the citrus and white peach spectrum. Handy length and freshness.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Deutz's 2012 Millésimé Brut (LA116D25717) has a white/copper-golden color and opens with a terribly clear, fresh, concentrated and aromatic bouquet of ripe white fruits, nuts and a classic chalkiness in the background. The palate is tight, pure, dry, fresh, straight and structured but elegant, with a long, mineral finish. Very stimulating yet tight, this is a really excellent 2012 and still terribly fresh! Tasted in June 2018.

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.
