Deutz Brut Classic 1975
Colour: Straw. Aromas: Developed aromas with creamy strawberry flavours. Delicate and slightly perfumed. Palate: Soft and full with fine biscuity yeast autolysis characters and a clean fresh finish. Suggested Food Matches: Champagne is best chilled to about 8°C and served in stemmed, fluted glasses. It makes a fine aperitif and will go well with any subtle flavoured food such as seafood, fish and light chicken entree. Champagne also goes well with salty foods, deep fried food, lightly spiced oriental foods, soups and vegetables. Strawberries are a fine compliment.
Great champagne on the lower end of the NV prices. Ive seen it for ~$32 in some place. Nice yeasty nose, brioche, subtle fruit flavors, delicate.
Very nice, powerful wine with nice nut aromas and a real zesty structure.
External Reviews for Deutz Brut Classic
Since this house was acquired by Louis Roederer, their Champagnes have gained in quality and should be sought out by Champagne lovers. The Brut "Classic" is a wonderful value made from roughly equal proportions of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. It is a blend of multiple vintages aged for 3 years before being disgorged. A Champagne offering elegance, subtlety and an expressive finish.
In a flight of nonvintage Champagnes, this one stood out for its more evolved, savory flavors and creamy mouthfeel. Meaty and leathery, with elements of soy and mushroom that are balanced by citrusy acids.
Consistently a top scorer. It always has a relatively high proportion of reserve wine, and with extra aging this gives increased depth, richness and complexity. A delightful, creamy-textured, wonderfully moreish fizz, drinking very well.
Somewhat closed hint of crisp fruit. smooth, evenly balanced, nicely proportioned, rounded finish, long in flavor. 4–7 years.
Though it has mature, slightly toasty aromas, this wine also has great flavors of grapefruit, some lemon peel and a vibrant white fruit character. It is dry, with the clean, fresh acidity going right through to the finish.
This lively Champagne brims with apple and pear notes. Lacy and open, with hints of malt and honey. Has good length. Drink now.
Year in and year out, Deutz manages to put out a fine, eminently drinkable nonvintage brut. This one projects vanilla, pear and coconut via the bouquet, and apple, pear and cinnamon through the palate. With lively citrus afternotes, it finishes tight and sure. The acidity is appley and moves everything along.
