Deutz : Vintage Brut 2007SKU:3141/07
This 2007 Brut Millésimé of Deutz is a great Champagne. Its elegance is enjoyable as an appetizer as well as during the meal. It bears a bright and clear golden colour. This 2007 presents an abundant effervescence of a great finesse. The nose is pure and precise. It gives off white flower, linden-tree and honey notes. On the palate, the 2007 Brut of Deutz offers a bold and nervous attack on a good aromatic intensity. It possesses the frankness and elegance of Family Deutz wines, and expresses delicate aromas of ripe pear and mirabelle, without exuberance on the whole. The finish, with a persistent bubble, is long and generous, promising a great ageing potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The citrus yellow, white-golden colored 2007 Millésimé Brut opens with an invitingly clear, fresh and quite intense bouquet of white flowers, lemons, lime blossom and hints of honey. Medium-bodied, slinky and elegant on the palate, the characterful Millésimé finishes with a firm, citric and persistent minerality. This is a tension-filled Champagne made from 65% Pinot Noir (from Bouzy, Mareuil-sur-A, Verzenay, A and Ambonnay), 30% Chardonnay (from Avize and Villers-Marmery) and 5% Pinot Meunier (from Binson-et-Orquigny). The wine I tasted had the lot number LA111D34413.
