One of the oldest of Champagne's prestigious Grandes Marques houses. Champagne Deutz has been making fine champagnes since 1838. The house has upheld the traditions of fine Champagne making handed down through five generations. Owning a 42ha of its own vineyards, Deutz selects only top rated grapes from the finest crus of Champagne. The wines are carefull aged in the chalk cellars far beneath the village of Ay. The unique bottle shape guarantees the provenance of every bottle
The grapes are harvested in Ay, Marne Valley, Cotes des Blancs, and Montagne de Reims, with over 80% of the grapes coming from vineyards that are rated Premier or Grand Cru. For some years the company has employed a policy of sustainable viticulture, cutting down on the use of chemicals, reducing yields and increasing grape quality.
Only the first press must, cuvée, is used. The wine is fermented in small tanks, with each plot being vinified separately, all the wine undergoes malo-lactic fermentation. After the assemblage, the wines are left to age for around 3 years. Brut Classic represents the distinctive house style of elegance and finesse. This non-vintage Champagne is matured according to traditional methods from a blend of several vintages from twenty of the best crus until it reaches a perfect balance of flavour.
The philosophy of the House is based on precision and patience, cellar master must retain only the best quality pressings from all grapes and each vat must contain the still wine from a carefully identified vineyard plot.
The champagnes are hence characterized by finesse, elegant vinosity and complexity, as it can be noted in Champagne Deutz Brut Classic: first released in 1994, this fine multi-vintage Champagne, blended from selected harvests, has been the latest step in the brand’s evolution, with its smooth silky style and texture on the palate and the complexity and sophistication of a very fine wine.
