cuvee william deutz champagne 2009 750ml
The Cuvee William Deutz is a tribute to the brand's founder. Its distinctive power gives it a special place amongst the Deutz range. Intensely seductive, with a bright golden hue, this is a generous wine both in its structure and flavors. These are fresh, suave and well-built. Its true panache lies in the lingering memory of its taste.
On the nose: Attractive freshness and fragrance here with yellow flowers, almond blossom, lemon, grapefruit and dried peaches. Some more savory grilled nutty notes too.
On the palate: A core of fine mineral acidity, almost smoky. The length and polished texture from time on lees is majestic. Drink now.
96 points - James Suckling:
"A dense and layered Champagne with hints of pie-crust and almond character. Very fine bubbles. Medium to full body. Creamy and flavorful. Shows length and richness. Open and ready. Drink now. (9/2/19)"
95-96 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide):
"(disgorged June 2018; 29% chardonnay from Avize, Chouilly and Villers-Marmery, 67% pinot from Ay, Verzenay, Bouzy and Ambonnay, 4% meunier from Pierry; aged 8 years on lees; 6.5g/L dosage; cork; released before the 2008). A wonderful expression of the exuberant personality of 2009, captured with the refinement and attentive focus that define Deutz. It brims with flamboyant ripeness of grilled pineapple, ripe fig and succulent pear proportions, contrasting with grapefruit bite and even a suggestion of fennel crunch. Lees age has brought notes of vanilla-candied almonds. The ripe phenolics of 2009 have been well managed, though define the grip and structure as emphatically as its fine chalk minerality and ripe yet tangy acid line. A cuvÃ©e of impressive persistence, personality and presence... just not a patch on the 2008 (coming next!). Bottles tasted in Champagne show a little more refinement, poise and lemon freshness. (2020-2021)"
94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):
"The 2009 Brut MillÃ©simÃ© William Deutz is ripe, racy and seductive. Lemon confit, mint, tangerine oil and kirsch meld together in a forward, flamboyant Champagne endowed with tremendous appeal. Radiant and open-knit, the 2009 will drink well upon release. Tangerine oil, passion fruit and a touch of vanillin add an exotic flair. Drink: 2019-2029. (Dec 2019)"
94 points Decanter:
"The William Deutz 2009 is very much a bon viveur who is already giving plenty of immediate pleasure. Bright, youthful and balanced, it exhibits a delightful mÃ©lange of praline, honey, citrus, toast and dried fruits. Less heralded than its older 2008 sibling, this is very easy to enjoy now but it has enough acidity and structure to age and develop. Drinking Window: 2019-2035. (Mar 2019)"
94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate):
"Disgorged in 2018, the 2009 Brut CuvÃ©e William Deutz is charming and expressive, wafting from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, fresh peach, crisp yellow apple and brioche. Medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant, it's chalky and precise despite is demonstrative, enveloping core of fruit, complemented by a delicate mousse. It's already drinking well. Drink: 2020-2039. (Apr 2020)"
94 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast:
"This is the richer of the two prestige cuvÃ©es from this producer. It is made for aging and this Champagne is still very young. All the elements are there, including rich fruits, spice and good acidity. But wait at least until 2022 for this wine to approach maturity. (Dec 2019)"
