• The intense golden appearance is topped with a mousse of great finesse - the Deutz signature - characteristic of wines having benefited from long maturation on the lees. • On the nose, the wine initially displays floral notes (hawthorn blossom, white flowers,…), followed by aromas of toast, marzipan and ripe fruits (apples, pears,…). • In the mouth, the freshness of the Chardonnay and the richness of the Pinot Noir enhance the wine's full-bodied elegance, presenting a wine with finely integrated aromas and a silky texture. • The wine is well-rounded with an intensely fruity finish.
Composition of the Cuvée Brut Classic is a fine multi vintage champagne, blended from selected harvests. Each year, a certain proportion of reserve wine (between 20 and 40%) is added to the blend in order to maintain a level of consistency, complexity and the particular house style desired. The key to the Brut Classic's distinctive style lies in using only top quality fruit (an average of 97% in village classifications) and in selecting the finest crus (20 to 30) from the Marne area ; the final balance is achieved using only the three principal grape varieties of Champagne : Pinot Noir (1/3), Pinot Meunier (1/3) and Chardonnay (1/3).
Food and Wine Affinities This “Classic” champagne is the most eclectic of the Deutz range : it is ideal as an aperitif and may also accompany a variety of fish dishes (salmon, turbot, John Dory), poultry and white meats.
