Pale and clear with golden tints and delicate threads of fine beads. Although still discreet on the nose, the champagne is already displaying nice complexity. Aromas of white peach, mirabelle plum and kumquat blend with enticing notes of honeysuckle and patisserie. The champagne is clean, silky, precise and delicate on entry to the palate, with a good mineral backbone. After a few seconds, the bouquet transforms into a rainbow of delicious flavours. Rich aromas of yellow peach, mirabelle plum, ripe apples and white flowers subtly combine to create a perfectly harmonious bouquet. The finish is direct, elegant and long-lasting with a pleasant minerality, characteristic of the Chardonnay variety from which this champagne is exclusively produced. Due to the opulence of this vintage, the Amour de Deutz 2006 is already showing itself to be well built and very enjoyable. If you are patient, this champagne has the potential to attain even greater perfection over the coming years, or even decades.
Composition of the blend
