Description & Technical Information
-
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.

Weather:In 2013, the growth cycle was delayed, with the vines flowering as late as July in some places due to the long winter and cool spring. Hailstorms caused some damage, but overall the summer was hot and dry. The weather turned wet towards mid-September, causing outbreaks of rot. The harvest was long and started late, on September 24th. However, most of the picking of the abundant yield (12,0008 kg/ha) took place in cool conditions in October thus contributing to a classic cool and linear style of Champagne. Taking into consideration the challenging season, the wines have positively surprised with their pure fruitiness, racy palates and stylish restraint. There is heterogeneity in the results, but the best belong to the Champagne elite. This vintage is greatly underrated and will likely become better appreciated over time, when the region's most iconic wines are released.

Tasting Note: There is the trademark Deutz smoky chalk aromas and then you see some ripe lemon and bright red apple and some yellow fruit with a hint of tropical. On the palate it is fresh and a creamy yet mineral texture, typical of the chalky rich soils of the Côte des Blancs in which most of the grapes grow. The finish is long lingering and remarkably intense.

Antonio Galloni
“The 2013 Brut Blanc de Blancs is broad and ample on the palate, with the natural richness of the vintage. An extra year in bottle provides a stark contrast to the steelier personality of the 2014 tasted alongside it. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and pastry notes give the 2013 an extra kick of flavor intensity and textural depth that is hugely appealing.”
