Deutz Blanc de Blanc 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Deutz is the epitome of understated excellence. Founded in 1838, the House is situated not in the conspicuously commercial centres of Reims or Epernay, but amongst the vineyards of one of the region’s greatest villages: A-Champagne. This sums up Deutz’s approach, in which style is always matched by substance. Fruit is sourced from twenty to thirty top villages in the Marne Valley, giving an average classification of 97% on the echelle des crus. All Deutz’s vineyard sources lie within a twenty-mile radius of the House, ensuring the grapes arrive in pristine condition. Deutz use only the first pressings of juice (the cuvée) to maximise the quality of the finished wine; the remainder (the taille) is sold off to other producers. Twenty to forty percent of reserve wines are used in the non-vintage blend to add richness and complexity. The Blanc de Blanc 2004 - with its refined, biscuity aromas, a soft texture, and a citrus finesse - is a quintessential Blanc de Blancs. 92 points from Robert Parker.
