It is a decidedly rich Amour de Deutz yet all of the wine's signature elements are in place. The 2003 has slightly less aromatic nuance than the 2000 I tasted last year but also quite a bit more fruit. Most fascinating of all is that the extreme qualities of the 2003 harvest are nowhere to be found. Bright hints of lemon pears pastry white flowers and mint are beautifully woven together. This is a round sensual Champagne that can be enjoyed now or cellared. Today it is firing on all cylinders even if it is very young. The 2003 Amour de Deutz is 100% Chardonnay from Avize (50%) Le Mesnil (45%) and Villers Marmery (5%). This is Lot LA107D06011. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

Poached pear nectarine and sweet butter aromas are complicated by notes of fleur de sel and orange zest. Juicy precise and deep with intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors carrying through a very long spicy faintly smoky finish. I wouldn't have guessed that this elegant and precise Champagne came from a hot vintage.

A product of the 2003 vintage the wine is rich full with a soft texture ripe pears and pineapple. Not as impressive as previous vintages although still a delightful wine.

A floral note winds through this balanced Champagne which offers flavors of yellow apple white raspberry honey and candied lemon zest. Modest minerally finish.
