Champagne Deutz Brut Classic NV Gift Pack

Champagne Deutz owns 42 hectares of vineyards, which supply 20%
of its grapes. The rest of the grapes are sourced from growers, many
of whom have been working with Deutz for generations. Grapes are
harvested from the Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, and Vallée
de la Marne, with over 80% of the grapes coming from vineyards
that are rated Premier or Grand Cru. Harvest is usually around mid September and is done by hand, with pickers paid by the hour rather
than the kilo, to ensure they do not compromise on the quality of the
fruit that they harvest. Deutz farms all its vineyards according to the
principals of la lutte raisonnée.

All the grapes in this blend 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
are tasted and blended in the Spring following the harvest, with
the final assemblage happening in June. At Deutz anywhere between
25% and 40% of the blend will be reserve wines. The wine was then
aged for a minimum of 3 years on the lees, and a further 6 months
following dégorgement before release.

The Brut Classic represents the distinctive house style of elegance
and finesse, which has made Deutz one of the most respected
of all Champagne houses.

The colour of the wine is an intense gold with fine effervescence that signifies long maturation on the lees. On the nose, the wine initially displays notes of hawthorn and white flowers, which are followed by aromas of toast, marzipan and ripe pears. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and elegant with the freshness of Chardonnay and richness of Pinot Noir. Overall, the wine is well-rounded with a fruity finish.
