One of the oldest members of Champagne's prestigious association of Grandes Marques houses, Champagne Deutz has been making distinctive Champagnes characterized by finesse, elegant vinosity and complexity since 1838.
Owning a considerable portion of its own vineyards, Deutz selects only the top quality grapes from 275 acres of vineyards in the finest crus of Champagne. The wines are slowly and carefully aged in Deutz's chalk-walled cellars far beneath the historic village of Aÿ
The distinctive house style of elegance and finesse which has made Champagne Deutz one of the most respected of all Champagne houses, is reflected in this fine non-vintage Champagne. Matured according to traditional methods from a blend of several vintages from twenty of the best crus of Champagne, it reaches a perfect balance of flavor.
