Deutz Brut Classic Champagne
|Region||France, Champagne, Reims|
Winemaker 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, the fruitiness and structure of Pinot Noir and a touch of vinosity from the Pinot Meunier
A creamy and fresh NV with lightly cooked apple, some brioche, lemon rind and a fresh finish. Drink now.
A harmonious and mouthwatering Champagne, with a lovely mix of white cherry, pastry, grated ginger and smoky mineral riding the elegant mousse. Racy finish.
One of only a handful of Champagne houses that only use the first press juices, plus an unusually high percentage of reserve wines (approximately 40%), Deutz's Brut Classic is a high quality NV Champagne. Pain grille aromas are followed by attractive fresh apple and brioche with good intensity and finesse. Vibrant and complex, with good persistence.
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.
A soft, gentle style of non-vintage Champagne, due perhaps to its relatively high dosage. But the whole wine is well in balance, the white fruits themselves giving a fine, elegant roundness.
