After weeks of tastings and assemblage of still wines from the 2018 harvest, DEUTZ has confirmed that it will realize this year its whole range of champagnes, including its vintage cuvées.
President Fabrice Rosset and Chef de Cave Michel Davesne thank Mother Nature and all the partner winegrowers who supplied their grapes, stressing that only exceptional wines are used to make DEUTZ vintage champagnes.
Bottling of the different cuvées started on the 2nd of May and ended on the 4th of July, for a total of 2.7 million bottles.
After the prise de mousse (the second in-bottle fermentation) that lasted for 3-4 weeks, the wines are now aging on lees – essential to obtain the desired maturity part of the distinctive DEUTZ style.
The champagnes will age for about 3 years for the non-vintage wines (mainly Deutz Brut Classic and Deutz Brut Rosé), 4, 5 or even 6 years for the Vintage Brut Millésimé, Rosé Millésimé, and Blanc de Blancs 2018; and finally, a minimum of 8 years to 10 years for the 2018 cuvées William Deutz, Amour de Deutz, and Amour de Deutz Rosé.
We look forward to tasting them when they will be ready 😉
