The Deutz Champagne House was founded in 1838 in Aÿ by two Prussians, one of which was William Deutz. One was a wine merchant and the other sold champagne. The two founders were both equally involved in bottling, disgorging, dosage and labelling, even before they owned their own champagne and vineyards. Throughout the 20th century, the heirs of the founders gradually shaped the vineyard by buying plots in the best terroirs of the Champagne region. Today, the Deutz Champagne House is owned by the famous Roederer family. The great history of Deutz champagnes portrays a harmonious style between both virtuosity and refinement.
This Amour de Deutz 2002 champagne is made from exceptional vineyards of the Côte des Blancs.
Amour de Deutz 2002 is synonymous with charm, harmony and purity. Produced only during exceptional vintages, this champagne is one of the finest interpretations of the Chardonnay varietal from the Champagne region’s historic Grands Crus.
Amour de Deutz 2002 is a 100% Chardonnay.
This champagne showcases a beautiful, clear, sparkling golden colour with subtle bronze highlights.
Mineral and very pure, the nose combines delicate notes of citrus fruit and brioche.
The palate is worthy of one of the most beautiful ballets, graceful and intoxicating.
The 2002 Amour de Deutz Brut Millésime is precise and very well defined on the noble and intense nose, which indicates a gorgeous maturity. On the palate, this prestige cuvée shows a great purity, lightness and finesse combined with impressive intensity, complexity and tension. The persistent finish of the exceptional 2002 is nicely bitter and displays stimulatingly fresh lemon flavors. I also tasted the 1999, which displayed vegetal and earthy aromas on the nose, and was very matured and maybe a bit too austere.
