Tasting Notes

The 2008 Brut William Deutz (375ml) is powerful, rich and intense, with plenty of warm, toasty notes that lend richness to the Chardonnay. Orange peel, candied apricot, pastry and butter notes flesh out in an expressive, layered Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. This is a distinctly rich, tropically-leaning style with considerable Pinot Noir richness. Readers who like big, ample Champagnes will find much to enjoy here. The 375ml bottles will be sold as a boxed set along with the 2008 Amour de Deutz and Amour de Deutz Rosé.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, November 2015

Served from the 375-milliliter bottle, the white-golden 2008 Cuvee William Deutz Brut Millésime offers a complex, concentrated and chalky bouquet; this leads to a complex, very pure and persistent palate with a lovely oxidative flavor. The finish is clear, fresh, long and very stimulating. 2016 - 2030

Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, June 2016

The finest vintages of William Deutz display profound contrasts and contradictions, juxtaposing the exacting precision of the house with the intensity of pinot noir, and it is in the most energetic vintages that this accord finds its most alluring expression. No season exemplifies this more magnificently than 2008.

It is built around depth and breadth, charged with an incredible display of the freshness of Deutz, and elevated and energised by ultra-fine, chalk-rich minerality that attains new heights of expression in this profound season. For all of its contrasts, it crucially maintains seamless persistence of breathtaking lightness. Youthful endurance is declared in vibrant lemon zest and young summer-fruit freshness, quietly touched with depth of brioche, ginger, vanilla nougat and toast. A prominent, mouth-enveloping, silky cloud of chalk dust is the grand highlight of a mesmerising finish, riding a laser-line of acidity of the utmost elegance… One of the greatest Deutz cuvées of the modern era.
