Unveiling Complexity: A Deep Dive into Deutz Blanc de Blancs Millesime 2013

A Celebratory Vintage

The Deutz Blanc de Blancs Millesime 2013 is a Champagne for connoisseurs seeking a nuanced and expressive Blanc de Blancs experience. This vintage release, crafted exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, hails from a year that initially presented challenges. A late growing season, punctuated by hailstorms, ultimately yielded a harvest of surprising quality. Cool conditions during picking resulted in a wine characterised by freshness, minerality, and a remarkable ageing potential.

Aromatic Intrigue

Deut's signature smokiness mingles with vibrant citrus notes on the nose. Think ripe lemons and crisp Granny Smith apples, alongside a touch of exotic yellow fruit and a whisper of tropical intrigue. Hints of chalk dust, a signature of the Côte des Blancs vineyards where the majority of grapes originate, add a captivating mineral dimension.

A Dance on the Palate

The first sip of Deutz Blanc de Blancs 2013 is a revelation. The attack is direct and invigorating, bursting with refreshing acidity. A creamy texture emerges, seamlessly interwoven with a core of minerality that reflects the chalk-rich soils of the region. This interplay between richness and vibrancy is a hallmark of Deutz Champagnes.

As the wine unfolds on the palate, flavours of orchard fruits take centre stage. Pears and apples mingle with a hint of citrus zest, while a touch of white blossom adds a touch of elegance. The underlying minerality persists, providing a backbone that enhances the wine's structure and complexity.

The finish is long, lingering, and remarkably intense. The flavours slowly fade, leaving a lasting impression of freshness and finesse.

Food Pairings for Exquisite Harmony

Deutz Blanc de Blancs 2013 is a versatile food pairing Champagne. Its balance of richness and acidity makes it a natural complement to a wide range of dishes. Here are some suggested pairings to elevate your dining experience:

  • Shellfish:  The creamy texture and underlying richness of the Champagne pair beautifully with lobster, crab, and prawns.
  • Poultry:  Roasted chicken or turkey with creamy sauces find a delightful partner in Deutz Blanc de Blancs. The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of the dish, creating a harmonious balance.
  • Vegetarian Cuisine:  Don't overlook the potential of Champagne with vegetarian dishes. This Blanc de Blancs pairs well with creamy mushroom risotto, goat cheese salads, or even flavourful vegetable curries.
