At Champagne Deutz, 2018 will be remembered as the year that Deutz released its first terroir-specific Champagne, the much lauded Hommage à William Deutz Parcelles d’Aÿ 2010. Coinciding with the 180th anniversary of the founding of the house in 1838, this wine was not only a homage to their illustrious founder, but also a celebration of Aÿ, arguably the most revered Grand Cru in Champagne and the village William Deutz chose to call home. The Parcelles d’Aÿ is 100% Pinot Noir hailing from two adjacent lieux dits overlooking the Deutz winery; La Côte Glacière and Meurtet. Situated on the vaunted mid-slope above the village and planted with old vine Pinot Noir, these vineyards rank among the finest owned by Deutz, and are regularly included in the composition of the house’s flagship wine, Cuvée William Deutz.
Following this exciting foray into the world of single-site, single-varietal Champagne, we are excited to announce that Champagne Deutz has taken this exploration of terroir even further with the 2012 vintage by releasing the two vineyards as separate expressions; Hommage à William Deutz La Côte Glacière 2012 and Hommage à William Deutz Meurtet 2012. These two new additions to the Hommage range will be available to taste for the first time at our portfolio tasting on 11th February. Find out more and register for the event here.
