The latest vintage release from this producer is dominated by Pinot Noir, rich and with considerable aging potential. For now, it is mineral, zesty and tightly textured, a concentrated wine offering white and citrus fruits and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and acidity. Drink from 2021.

A hint of salinity underscores the fresh and appealing range of crushed white cherry, pastry and candied pink grapefruit zest flavors in this finely knit, creamy Champagne. Bright and elegant. Drink now through 2027. 150 cases imported.

Attractively refined and gently minerally aromas make for an attractive, fresh impression on the nose, along with lemon, apricot and light cherry fruits. The palate has good depth of flavor in the citrus and white peach spectrum. Handy length and freshness. Drink now.

The Deutz 2012 Brut is a lovely entry-level vintage Champagne from Deutz. The white orchard fruit and floral notes confer freshness. Medium in body and light on its feet, the 2012 is a terrific choice for drinking over the next handful of years, while the flavors remain fresh. This is a very pretty wine from Deutz.
