Deutz Brut Rose (375ml Half Bottle)
A blend of the first Pinot Noir grands crus from the Montagne de Reims with a touch of Chardonnay (respectively about 90% - 10%). Its specific style and color are the result of blending in about 8% of red wine produced from old vines on the hill of Ay, particularly from a plot known as “Meurtet”. The vines are very well sited and belong to Deutz.
On the eye: A many-hued color with strong pink tinges and fine bubbles.
On the nose: Fresh and direct, with aromas reminiscent of cherries, blackberries, pomegranates and redcurrants.
On the palate: The wine shows a deliciously full body that follows on perfectly from the nose. Its flavors remind one of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The finish has a pleasantly acidulous character that adds to the impression of finesse given by this romantic and well-balanced wine.
This can be enjoyed as much as an aperitif as with a meal, where it would provide the perfect foil for salmon cooked with mushrooms, beef carpaccio, duck with red berry sauces, roast lamb chops or certain fresh and creamy cheese, such as Chaource or Brillat Savarin.
