Deutz

deutz amour de deutz rosé 2009 750ml

$224.99

Since 1838 Deutz has been based in the Grand Cru village of Ay, just west of Epernay. By the late 19th Century Deutz became a much sought after Champagne consumed by many heads of state and royalty. In 1983 the Rouzaud family, owners of Louis Roederer, purchased Deutz and installed the talented Fabrice Rosset as the CEO. The Deutz style continues to be understated, refined, and made to exacting standards. In addition to their property in Ay, Deutz has acquired vineyards in the Cotes des Blanc and have secured long term contracts with their grower partners, all of which practice sustainable vineyard management. Mr Rosset was responsible for engineering the success of Roederer's premium cuvee Cristal, and has introduced his own line of prestige cuvees, Amour de Deutz. Under the leadership of Mr Rosset, Deutz is again a much sought after brand with significant market presence in Europe and the US.

WINEMAKER NOTES

Sumptuous gold-pink hue flecked with copper. The elegant beads of bubbles give it a joyful, almost dancing, appearance. The attractive nose develops delicate aromas of slightly jammy red fruit accompanied by subtle notes of vanilla.

The palate is equally attractive, offering us a "recital" of complexity against a backdrop of red fruit such as strawberries and red currants, as well as dense fruit such as blackcurrants. The finish remains elegant and shows a velvety texture. It is complemented by a very classy balance between power and freshness.

An extremely promising cuvée, in the purest Deutz style, it fits neatly within Maison Deutz' "Trio de Prestige". It shows traits of character that reflect its originality. 

A luxurious aperitif, it will also partner well with delicate, subtle, and even spicy, dishes. It will pair very nicely with a grilled lobster or with the fine flesh of delicate fish such as Red Mullet or John Dory. It can also complement and will even magnify, a Kobe beef carpaccio or a fine pigeon cooked in cherries. 

 

Blend: 57% Pinot Noir, 43% Chardonnay

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

WE95, Wine Enthusiast

"This is one of two prestige cuvées from this house, under the same ownership as Roederer Champagne. Always a seductive wine, this vintage has excelled itself. Its poise, restrained elegance and fragrant fruitiness are impeccable. Acidity, red fruits and a crisp texture are all present. Let the wine age and drink from 2022."

 

D94, Decanter

"Just 1,200 bottles of this prestige cuvée were made in 2009, a blend of 57% Pinot Noir from vineyards in Ay, Verzenay, Ambonnay and Bouzy. The 43% Chardonnay comes from Avize, Mesnil sur Oger, Chouilly and Villers-Marmery. Its gorgeous colour comes from the inclusion of 6% Pinot Noir still wine, produced by Deutz from plots of old vines on the Ay hillside known as ‘La Belle’, as well as from plots in Mareuil-sur-Ay called ‘Cumaine’ and ‘Charmont’. Classically styled, Deutz's savoir-faire has delivered an elegantly vinous rose with sweet, bright strawberry and redcurrant fruits juxtaposed with savoury toast and brioche. As always, its very pure and precise with a ripe, moreish texture in perfect counterpoint to the fresh, tingling acidity. A lovely benchmark expression of fine rosé, with great versatility to work as an aperitif or with food.

 

JS94, James Suckling

"The peach and lemon-rind aromas are very impressive on the nose. Some raspberry sorbet. Medium to full body. Shows depth and focus. Lots of flavor. Hints of apple underneath. Drink now."

 

WW94, Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

"COMMENTARY: The 2009 Champagne Deutz Amour de Deutz is dynamic and energetic. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with lasting aromas and flavors of savory spices, earth, and baked bread. Pair it with oven-baked salmon in parchment. (Tasted: April 27, 2022, San Francisco, CA)"

 

RP93, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The recently released 2009 Brut Rosé Millésime Amour de Deutz is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with a classy bouquet of citrus oil, crisp red apple, warm brioche, sourdough bread and dried rose petals. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant, with racy acids, a pretty core of fruit, a delicate mousse and a deceptively long finish. Understated but displaying terrific finesse, this wine exemplifies the Deutz style."

 

WS93, Wine Spectator

"Creamy and elegant, with a lovely, mouthwatering juiciness to the well-knit acidity and a fine, chalk-tinged underpinning to the delicate flavors of nectarine, white cherry, spring blossom and candied pink grapefruit zest. Offers a fresh, lingering finish. Disgorged May 2018. Drink now through 2029."
