  • Terroir
    The Deutz champagne house procures its grapes from over 110 hectares of vineyards located where the best vintages of the historic Champagne region grow. Prolonged aging in cellars dug into the Aÿ commune’s sedimentary chalk ensures the champagne blooms and develops complex aromas.
  • Vinification and maturation
    A blend of the first pinot noir grands crus from the Montagne de Reims with a touch of chardonnay (respectively about 90% - 10%). Its specific style and colour are the result of blending in about 8% of red wine produced from old vines on the hill of Aÿ, particularly from a plot known as “Meurtet”. The vines are very well sited and belong to Deutz. The red wine is made by our cellar-master. After almost three years ageing on its lees, the aromas have softened and harmonized, giving this Brut Rosé a particularly subtle nose, and a very interesting mixture of softness and freshness on the palate.
  • Features
    A many-hued colour with strong pink tinges and fine bubbles. The nose is fresh and direct, with aromas reminiscent of cherries, blackberries, pomegranates and
    redcurrants. On the palate, the wine shows a deliciously full body that follows on perfectly from the nose. Its flavours remind one of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The finish has a pleasantly acidulous character that adds to the impression of finesse given by this romantic and well-balanced wine.
  • Food Pairings
    This can be enjoyed as much as an aperitif as with a meal, where it would provide the perfect foil for salmon cooked with mushrooms, beef carpaccio, duck with red berry sauces, roast lamb chops or certain fresh and creamy cheese, such as Chaource or Brillat-Savarin.
