90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Open and expressive, the latest NV Brut Classic from Deutz offers up aromas of green pear, peach, pastry cream and flowers. Medium to full-bodied and fleshy but precise, it's elegant and charming, with a seamless profile and considerable immediate appeal.
90pts Wine & Spirits
This wine's concentrated flavors focus on mineral richness rather than freshness, lemon pith rather than zest. Its green apple and pear fruit blends into the chalkiness, all of a piece. For wood-roasted oysters.
90pts Wine Enthusiast
The elegance of this nonvintage cuvée sums up the style of the house, balancing acidity with a dosage that is just right. The white fruits and tangy edge are refreshing and intense. Drink the bottling now.
Distinctively Deutz in style with vinosity and verve, this is fresh, elegant and round with a precocious ripeness and good depth. The base is largely the 2015 vintage (50%) with additions from 2013 and 2014 reserve wines. As always, it's an equal blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, sourced from premier cru and grand cru vineyards from the Marne area. Drinking Window 2019 - 2022
The most "classical" of the Deutz cuvees is far from mundane. The three different champagne grapes are blended in equal and unchanging proportions, ensuring it shows perfect harmony. Its golden color scintillates in the glass, with a fine stream of bubbles rising gracefully to the surface. The first impressions on the nose are mellow and reminiscent of acacia flowers, confectionery, Reinette apples, and brioche. The wine then gains in volume and its silky texture reveals a successful balance between the freshness of Chardonnay, the fruitiness and structure of Pinot Noir and a touch of vinosity from the Pinot Meunier
