Deutz Champagne Blend Champagne Brut 1988

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The bronzy color of this wine is the first indication that we’ve entered a different phase here. The nose is rich and layered with notes of brown butter, nuts, flowers, smoky dried fruits, sottobosco and some dried herbal tones. On the palate this has evolved into a delicate wine with a superb, fine mousse. Less rich and perhaps even less complex than some of the younger vintage though this has a fascinating combination of finesse, austerity and vinosity that makes this totally compelling and refreshing. The finish reveals notes of green hazelnuts and white chocolate with a finale that recalls the steely tang of aged Chablis. 95pts

A mature, aromatic and elegant wine. Superbly toasted aromas of whole wheat and sesame. There's a hint of sweetness to the wine, grapefruit and lemon. The acidity is perfectly in harmony with the toast, mellowing into the lovely bready finish.

Searing acidity results in a sharp attack. The sugars soften this quickly resulting in a well balanced and very subtle wine - gentle biscuit flavors and a wine that is clean and lively. Some nice age showing on the finish.
