Champagne Deutz - Brut Classic

Presentation of the vineyard
The Deutz winery was created in Aÿ back in 1838 by two wine merchants named William Deutz and Pierre-Hubert Geldermann, both originating from Aachen in Germany. Together they bought land in Champagne and became vintners. Mixing technical knowledge, focus on export and a lot of ambition, they managed to create a quality reputation abroad long before the beginning of the 1900s. The Deutz vineyards are situated in Aÿ and to some extent also in the notorious "Côte des Blancs".
A golden clear color with silvery hues. The bubbles are small with great vivacity. The fragrance is fresh with hints of apple, acacia flowers, marzipan with a fruity winey basic structure. The palate is a harmonious blend of the chardonnay's freshness, the Pinot noir fruitiness and the Pinot Meunier a bit winier structure.
