With its shimmering blonde hue and fine, plentiful bubbles, this champagne will whet your appetite as soon as it catches your eye.
On the nose, this remarkable vintage develops elegant aromas of white flowers and crisp white peaches. Its bouquet of primary aromas is perfectly complemented by delicate notes of honey, bestowed upon it by the loving, protective sun.
The champagne is lively and precise on entry to the palate. It provides a sensation of balance and purity and an unrivalled harmony of flavours and textures. Perfectly consistent with the nose and the first impressions on the palate, the champagne goes on to show a full, smooth yet lively character. Deliciously rich fruit aromas coat the palate.
The finish is equally well-balanced between richness and minerality. These two qualities indicate excellent potential for bottle ageing.
Between the Deutz Brut Classic and the grande cuvee ”William Deutz”, this Brut Vintage holds its own at the centre of the Deutz brotherhood. With its pure character, it shows the same integrity and elegance as the other champagnes from the Deutz family, all of which are born from the noble terroirs of the historical Champagne region.

Pinot Noir: around 63%, from the terroirs of Bouzy, Mareuil-sur-Ay, Verzenay, Ay, Ambonnay”

Food and wine pairing
The Deutz Brut Vintage 2008 is a champagne possessing perfect elegance and a strong presence which make it equally well-suited to serving as an aperitif or pairing with fine cuisine. Enjoy it with sushi, sashimi, crab cakes, delicately-flavoured fish (even in sauce), white truffle risotto or even with white meat dishes such as veal in a cream sauce or a chicken and lemongrass puff pastry tart.
For lovers of ”dessert champagnes”, this champagne is also available as a demi-sec with a sugar dosage of 40g per litre. Although this style of champagne has been somewhat overlooked in past years, the ”Deutz Vintage Demi-Sec” can easily be laid down in the cellar for ten or fifteen years and is the perfect choice for desserts.
