In 1838, the House of Deutz was founded by two young entrepreneurs from Aachen, Pierre-Hubert Geldermann and William Deutz. They established a philosophy of total commitment that quickly made their champagnes popular throughout Europe.
Today, the magic of l'Amour is working more than ever. The emblematic cuvée, the wines chiseled in homage to the Founder, are shaped with respect, in the spirit of the generations that have succeeded.
On the eve of its bi-centenary, Deutz is committed to being a modern brand with an inspired style. Perpetuating the values of the land, magnifying the talent of men, convincing them of the rightness of the chosen course are the motto of today and tomorrow.
The Deutz champagne house
Patience through the seasons
The vine undergoes the rhythm. It bends to the vagaries and whims of the forces that impose them on it. Grateful for the thoughtful and loving gesture of the winegrower, it will give birth, one hundred days after the smile of the flowering, to the long-awaited fruit.
The patient art of blending
Vinification and maturation shape the characters. The chardonnay becomes more elegant, the pinot noir more honest, the pinot meunier more enchanting. The personalities unite patiently at the repeated invitation of the masters of the Assemblage school.
The wines require the necessary rest before presenting themselves to the public, already drunk with sparkle, aromas, complexity or elegance. Some of them, with their long-lasting temperament, will ask to be expressed late, after years or even decades.
Once past the large portal decorated with the founder's coat of arms, the bronze Angelot with discreet wings welcomes the visitor. Gracefully seated in a conch shell, his loins girded with a negligee drape, "Love" watches over him.
The Love of the Earth
From the lands of the Grands Crus, from the respect of the terroirs and from the love of the profession are born precious and delicate fruits. From this age-old and marvelous alchemy, wines will be born whose purity will consecrate them as true works of art.
