A founding member of the prestigious Syndicat des Grandes Marques, Deutz upholds the highest standards in grape selection and winemaking techniques. Their meticulously crafted Champagnes are renowned for their elegance, complexity, and ageing potential.

The Jewel in the Crown: The Amour de Deutz

The Amour de Deutź, literally translating to "Love of Deutz," is the pinnacle of the House's production.  Produced only in exceptional vintages, it embodies the essence of Deutz's philosophy.  Sourced from Grand Cru vineyards in Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, along with select Premier Cru sites in the Montagne de Reims, the 2008 vintage benefits from a meticulous selection of Chardonnay grapes.  Following extended ageing in the Deutz cellars, this Champagne emerges as a remarkable expression of terroir and vintage.

Delicate notes of white flowers, such as honeysuckle and acacia, intertwine with citrusy hints of lemon and grapefruit.  Subtle nuances of white peach, hazelnut, and fresh almond emerge, adding complexity to the aroma.  The overall impression is one of remarkable elegance and finesse.
