DEUTZ CHAMPAGNE CUVEE WILLIAM ROSE 1999

Wine Region: Champagne, France

Tasting Notes

It bears a sparkling golden robe, with warm glints and fine bubbles. It is precise, delicate and complex on the nose. It gives off fruity aromas of mirabelle, white peach or even mild spices and narcissus. On the palate, this William Deutz 1999 reveals a rare intensity in which mineral and roasty notes express with suppleness. The attack leads to more generous aromatic notes: yellow fruit, candied ginger, nutmeg and honey... The taste seduces by its tender and velvety texture in which its breadth and vinosity echo the original freshness. The finish has a great aromatic persistence on brioche and hazelnut flavours that linger forever...

Ratings

Wine Advocate-Parker - The 1999 Brut Cuvee William Deutz offers up ripe, tropical fruit, sweet spices, butterscotch and toastiness in a big, extroverted style. The wine comes across as rather rich and dense, but there is just enough minerality to provide a measure of balance and freshness.

About the Winery

The house Deutz offers a range of champagnes with very fine bubbles, and dominated by a very beautiful vinosity that we owe to the dominance of Pinot in the assemblages. The Brut Classic is characteristic of the Deutz style, with a fresh attack, then a mouth dominated by the fruit, and always this little vinous touch.
