    Winemaker's Notes:

    Powerful nose, rich and complex, that shows aromas reminiscent of baked apples, together with light and pleasant hints of preserved ginger and nutmeg, amongst others.

    The entry is crisp and the wine then develops considerable finesse, also revealing delicate flavors of sultanas that evoke the charms of a sunny place.

    With its deliciously rich and savory finish, the Cuvée William Deutz 1998 gives one the impression of a wine that has opened up fairly rapidly, showing a full range of secondary aromas that are usually found in Champagnes that have been aged for a longer period.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh bakery aromas with notes of orange marmalade, caramel and peach. Candied apricot flavors laced with an attractive blend of brioche, almond and charred oak nuances. There is a youthful tartness in the finish that is balanced by a lingering mix of cream and autolysis.

    A top wine in the Deutz range, packed with maturing richness, balancing fresh grapefruits against toasted almonds, an elegant structure, and an impressive power of flavor, leaving a dense mouthful of wine that manages to float at the same time.

    The 1998 Cuvee William Deutz flows from the glass with compelling layers of flowers, apricots, succulent pears, minerals and smoke. This Champagne offers a gorgeous combination of mineral-driven freshness with a richly-textured core of fruit. The Cuvee William Deutz should continue to drink beautifully for at least another decade.

    Light yellow. Smoky orange, lemon pith and date aromas are complicated by pungent herbs, minerals and dried flowers. Fleshy, impressively pliant and deep, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors, chewy texture and a whiplash of dusty minerals on the finish. I suspect that this impressively taut wine will continue to gain weight and power for at least a decade.
