“Light to medium youthful salmon-pink colour, with rose petal, pot-pourri, and quince paste aromas. The wine is full and rich in the mouth with a trace of sweetness, and generosity rather than finesse. Good wine and very accessible. (Base vintage 2012. Disgorged February 2016. 90% pinot noir, 10% chardonnay) Tasted: 24/10/2017.” – 92 Points, Huon Hooke.
“The pure, fresh style of Deutz is perfectly suited to elegant and restrained rosé, and the house is unusual in producing the style at three different levels. Fabrice Rosset admits the challenge is to maintain a consistent style every year. Right from the start, the entry cuvee is a gorgeous, bright, pale salmon, with a delightful air of rose petals and a pristine palate of exact red cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit. The 2012 base represents a particular graceful blend, a dazzling showpiece of pinot noir in all its glory, yet with refreshing elegance instilled by profound chalk mineral texture. Its long, refined and exactingly pinpoint accurate, a profound demonstration of the accomplishment of Deutz in crafting pristine pinot noir.” – 95 Points, Tyson Stelzer “The Champagne Guide” 2018/19.
