Robert Parker – 93-95
2008 – RP95 by Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate The citrus-colored 2008 Amour de Deutz Brut Millésime is still yeasty on the nose, but very clear and elegant on the palate. This is a super pure and mineral, well-balanced Millésime with a long, intense and persistent finish. This is full of tension and finesse. A great wine.
2009 – RP93 by William Kelley, Wine Advocate The 2009 Brut Millésimé Amour de Deutz wafts from the glass with a pretty bouquet of ripe citrus oil, fresh peach, white flowers and subtle hints of warm biscuits. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and fine-boned, with a generous core of fruit, racy acids and a nicely defined finish. It’s quintessential Deutz.
2010 – RP93 by William Kelley, Wine Advocate Deutz’s newly released 2010 Brut Millésimé Amour de Deutz is very pretty, wafting from the glass with scents of citrus zest, white flowers, brioche and hazelnuts. Medium-bodied, pillowy and incisive, with a chiseled core of fruit, racy acids and a pinpoint mousse, it’s a bright, fine-boned wine that represents a fine success in a rather challenging vintage.
