Deutz Champagne Brut Rose
Located in the Grand Cru village of Ay, Deutz Champagne was consumed by many heads of state and royalty in the 19th century. In 1983 the Rouzaud family, owners of Louis Roederer, purchased Deutz and since, the style continues to be understated and refined. The nose is fresh and direct, with aromas of cherries, blackberries, pomegranates and red currants. Made of 90% Pinot Noir, fresh strawberries and raspberries pop on the palate.
91 points, Robert Parker: “The NV Brut Rose is fabulous. A sweet, open bouquet leads to expressive fruit in this rich, textured wine. The Deutz Rose is a serious wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, but it also has more than enough power in reserve to drink well at the dinner table. Floral notes reappear to round out the finish. The blend is 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay.”
