Champagne Deutz, one of the founding members of the Assocation des Grand Marques was established in 1838 by William Deutz and Pierre-Hubert Geldermann. The house is based in Aÿ, the cru of oldest renown in the Champagne winegrowing region. Apart from extensive highly rated vineyards owned by the house itself, the present ownership, the Louis Roederer Group, is strengthening the company’s relations with vignerons in the best crus, ensuring that all of them constantly adhere to the viticultural practices that make a crucial contribution to the house style. Fabrice Rosset is the elegant PDG who oversees this lovely house and its sister house, Delas Frères in the Rhône Valley.
Total production is about two million bottles with 75% of the grapes brought in from Grand and Premier Cru vineyards. Its estate is spread over five villages, including some of the most beautiful locations in all Champagne, and as such Deutz has developed a rich, round, fruit-filled style that is vinous yet refreshing. Each blend boasts the same elegant signature bottle, in which it was aged on its lees for a minimum of three years – a guarantee of quality from the Brut Classic to the prestige cuvees.
