Champagne Deutz: Brut Rosé NV
30th September 2014
The grapes are pressed using automatic and traditional Coquard basket presses, and only the first press must, cuvée, is used. The wine is fermented in small, 10,000 litre tanks, with each plot being vinified separately, at between 16 & 18 degrees centigrade for two weeks; all the wine undergoes malo-lactic fermentation.
After the assemblage, the wines are then left to age on the lees for around 3 years, which softens and harmonises the aromas. Brut Rosé is a blend of the finest Pinot Noir grands crus from the Montagne de Reims, with a touch of Chardonnay. Its style and colour come from 8% of red wine produced from old vines on the hill of particularyl from a plot known as Meurtet”
The colour of the wine is many-hued, with strong pink tinges and fine bubbles. The nose is fresh and direct, with aromas of cherries, blackberries, pomegranates and red currants. On the palate the wine shows a deliciously full body that follows on perfectly from the nose, with flavours reminiscent of strawberries and raspberries and a pleasantly well-balanced finish.
