Amour de Deutz Blanc de Blancs represents the flagship Champagne in the Deutz offering. This rare and subtle champagne is produced only in exceptional vintage years. It is undoubtedly one of the best interpretations of Chardonnay from the Champagne region's historic Grand Crus.
Bright and clear with sparkling gold tinges. On the nose, its rich and complex with aromas of apricot, peach and hints of freshly cut herbs. The wine is lively and fresh, with scintillating acidity, small flowing bubbles and a silky smoothness. The persistent and seductive finish has notes of fresh butter.
The Chardonnay for this wine hails from some of the Côte des Blancs’ finest vineyards including Avize (50%), and Mesnil-sur-Oger (15%), Oger (12%), Villeneuve (11%), Vertus (around 6%) and Montagne de Reims’ Villers-Marmery (6%). The grapes were pressed and vinified at Deutz's state of the art winery in Aÿ, with each individual parcel being vinified in its own separate tank. Using Coquard presses, only the free-run juice and first pressing was used for this wine. Following alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the vin clairs were tasted and blended in the Spring of 2012, with the final assemblage happening in June. The wine was then aged for a minimum of 5 years on the lees, and a further 6 months following dégorgement before release.
The bottle comes presented in a white and gold Amour de Deutz branded box.
