Champagne Deutz Vertical Tasting of Cuvée William Deutz

11th October 2017


For those familiar with Champagne Deutz, it needs no introduction, even so ‘A Vertical Tasting of Cuvée William Deutz‘ is what I was very pleased to be invited to in October 2017 at 28-50 Kitchen Workshop in Mayfair.

Champagne Deutz was founded in 1838 by William Deutz and today can be found in the village of Ay near to the heart of the Champagne region that is Epernay. They currently produce around 2.5 million bottles a year to a worldwide audience from their 42 hectares of vineyard and selected growers in the region. Today Fabrice Rosset, who is the current Chairman and CEO, leads the growth of the brand which is very much focused on quality over volume which continues their international admiration from wine professionals globally and the continued success they receive at prestigious dedicated wine awards.

On the day a fine selection of wines were tasted by a selection of respected Champagne writers and press members, these were:

Lunch was provided by 28-50 where  Smoked Salmon, Ibericao Pork Jowl and cheese accompanied by Deutz Rosé Vintage 2009, Cuvée William Homage and Cuvée William vintage respectively.
