Champagne Deutz: Amour de Deutz 2005
29th September 2014
The grapes are harvested from the Cotes des Blancs, with over 80% of the grapes coming from vineyards that are rated Premier or Grand Cru.
For some years the company has employed a policy of durable viticulture, cutting down on the use of chemicals, reducing yields and increasing grape quality. The harvest usually takes place over a 10-day period, generally between mid-September and mid-October and the grapes are hand harvested, with careful attention to ripeness and health of the grapes.
Good things ome to those who wiat and Amour de Deutz is proof of that – a special Blanc de Blancs Tête de Cuvée, made from Chardonnay grapes that are harvested only in ears of exceptional quality. The grapes come from two grand crus vineyards in Cotes de Blancs – Mesnil sur Oger and Avize, with a touch of Villers- armer for “terroirs” hara teristi s
Bright and clear in colour, with a pale-gold hue. The aromas of this win are richly expressive, showing considerable complexity and sharp notes of Mirabelle plums, nectarine, all draped in a fresh whiff of pastry.
One the palate the wine is crisp and lovely, with a mineral-like edge and precise, taut flavours, which will develop over time. The finish is lingering and holds subtle aromas of flowers and citrus fruit, very characteristic of the Chardonnay grape.
