Deutz 'Amour de Deutz' 2008
The Amour de Deutz 2008 cuvee is produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes from Avize (57%) le Mesnil-sur-Oger (38%) and Villers-Marmery (around 5%).
On the eye: This champagne displays a shimmering, delicate pink-gold hue. The effervescence is fine, lively and steady and the ring of mousse, vibrant and joyful.
On the nose: It is particularly elegant and ethereal on the nose, releasing delicate notes of white flowers mingled with delicious aromas of nectarine and Mirabelle plum.
On the palate: Clean and silky on entry to the palate, fulfilling the promise of the nose, this champagne is the quintessence of Amour de Deutz. It's aromatic score is wonderfully melodious with all its floral, fruity and mineral notes in perfect harmony.
Amour de Deutz makes a sumptuous aperitif.
The dimension of the 2008 vintage has also given Amour de Deutz the body and texture of a champagne for gastronomy. It will pair very nicely with delicate, subtle foods, such as lobster, sea bass or halibut.
Dishes such as caviar, sushi, sashimi, and carpaccios of tuna or Kobe beef, should be served simply, seasoned with a little olive oil or accompanied by a light or succulent sauce. The champagne will complement, and even magnify, their flavors.
