Tasting Notes

Another open-knit, radiant wine, the 2002 Cuvée William Deutz is quite expressive today. Honey, almonds, dried pears, chamomile, mint and crushed flowers blossom effortlessly. There is plenty of vintage 2002 generosity, especially on the finish, where the wine offers notable richness, creaminess and unctuosity. Already a bit forward, with plenty of vintage's exoticism, the 2002 is probably best enjoyed over the next handful of years. The 2002 is 62% Pinot Noir (from Aÿ, Mareuil-sur Aÿ, Bouzy, Louvois and Ambonnay), 27% Chardonnay (mostly from Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) and 11% Pinot Meunier (from Peirry and Chatillon-sur-Marne).

60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier. Bright, light golden hue. A gorgeous, open, intense and aromatic nose. Attractive biscuit and toasted almond aromas. Freshly baked bread. Generous melony fruit. Lovely zesty & fresh on the palate with concentrated citrus fruits and beautifully clean racy acidity through the centre. Magnificent balance and intensity. Supple and rounded fleshy ripe exotic fruits. Wonderful balance, complexity and length. Super to drink now but will certainly keep for years yet. Great Champagne in a quintessentially 2002 style.

Predominantly made from Pinot Noir with Chardonnay and a little bit of Pinot Meunier, the 2002 Cuvée William Deutz Brut Millésimé is another highlight of the estate, if not the appellation. The bouquet of this Millésime is bright, very clear, fresh, aromatic and complex, whereas on the palate this is the quintessence of finesse, subtlety, purity and elegance. Sure, this is a structured wine, but it is made like a perfectly shaped antique Greek statue or a jewel. Everything here is perfectly interwoven and nothing stands out except the whole composition, which is perfectly balanced. The bouquet shows finest caramel and spicy oak notes along with white flowers and fine fruit flavors, whereas the palate of this medium-bodied and linear wine is firmly structured, fresh and absolutely delicate. The finish is pure and elegant, as well as complex and long. I would drink this outstanding champagne for its own merits.
