Delivery Details

Named in honour of the founder, William Deutz, Deutz Cuvée William Deutz 2006 Brut Vintage Champagne 75cl is the pinnacle of the Deutz expression. Pinot Noir grapes were sourced from the Grands Crus villages of Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay and Verzenay, while the Chardonnay hails from Avize, Vertus, Chouilly and Villers-Marmery. All the grapes were sent to the winery at Aÿ, where they were gently pressed using Coquard presses. Only the free-run juice and first pressing was used, being vinified separately in small stainless-steel tanks. Following extensive tasting in spring 2007, the vins clairs were blended and secondary fermentation took place in the bottle, followed by 9 years lees-ageing. On dégorgement the wine spent a further 9 months resting before release.

Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir
2006 started inauspiciously with a cold and wet spring resulting in slow early growth. However, a significant improvement in the weather in early June, gave the ideal conditions at flowering, resulting in good fruit set. July was unseasonably hot, and August was unseasonably cold but a welcome respite from the heady mid 30’s of July. Rain in August was welcome for preventing the physiological ripening from shutting down, as it had done in the heat of 2003. The result by harvest as a good-sized crop of well ripened grapes. It was a year that favoured Pinot Noir.
A golden colour with crystal-bright reflections, a powerfully rich and expressive nose with aromas of stewed white peaches, underscored by hints of honey, spices, preserved ginger and nutmeg. The palate is lively, crisp and well-defined, exuding delicate flavours of spices and fresh biscuit, with touches of stewed fruit, honey and roasted fresh almonds. The finish is silky complex and refined, with long lingering aromas.
Serve as the ultimate aperitif, or pair with truffled pasta, fried foie gras, mushroom risotto or Peking duck.
