Deutz Blanc de Blancs 2017
What a wonderfully enticing nose that marries white flower aromas with ripe pear and just a touch of toasted baguette. Stunning elegance on the beautifully proportioned palate, the racy and mineral acidity driving the graceful and precise finish off into the distance. Just a touch of ginger there. Very fine mousse.
Still young, this vintage Champagne is packed with highlights of minerality, taut white fruits and shots of citrus. Tightly textured, the wine will benefit from some more aging. Drink from 2022.
A firm Champagne, with a mouthwatering mix of ripe green apple, grated ginger, blanched almond and chamomile notes riding the fine, lively bead. Clean-cut and minerally on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 3,000 cases made, 75 cases imported.
The 2017 Brut Blanc de Blancs is bright and focused, with lovely persistence and energy throughout. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper all grace this taut, midweight Blanc de Blancs from Deutz. Drink it over the next handful of years.
