CHAMPAGNE DEUTZ – Amour de Deutz 2008
Around 150 euros per bottle
Bright presentation. Satin label, on which the name of the cuvée is embossed. Emblematic jewel wire.
Delicate and tonic bubbles.
Fine bead of bubbles.
Outstanding aromatic variations.
Refined touches of apple and pear compote, candied citrus fruits, grilled almond and hazelnut, delicately spirituous, highlighted by a spark of exotic fruits and by a mentholated breath, characteristic signs of the Chardonnay.
Later, the cuvée reveals all its sensuality with joyful notes of cocoa and roasted coffee, result of 9 years of ageing of the bottles in the deep chalk cellars of the house.
The heady tension and minerality show the vital force of the Champagne house at the opening, the one of the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs (57% Avize and 38% Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) completed by the Premier Cru terroir of Villers-Marmery in the Mountain of Reims.
The mouth becomes caressing, ample and generous, source of intense pleasure.
Interminable finish underlined by subtle spices.
With this new opus of the cuvée Amour de Deutz 2008, Michel Davesne, cellar master of the Champagne house Deutz, signs a magnificent champagne: words suddenly seem ludicrous….
Ideal to accompany the exceptional moments, from aperitif to meal, with a pan-fried fillet of sea bass and its leeks fondue, for example.
William Deutz, visionary, convinced of the absolute necessity to ensure the grapes quality selecting them in the best Crus, founded the eponymous house in Aÿ in 1838. True to the original concept, Fabrice Rosset is chief executive officer of the Champagne house Deutz since 1996. He has special relationships with partner wine growers to get a 245 hectares vineyard (Deutz owns 42 hectares) established in the best terroirs of Champagne (80% of Grands and Premiers Crus). With the complicity of his cellar master Michel Davesne, he crafts with accuracy unforgettable champagnes.
