Deutz Cuvée William Deutz Rosé Millésime

The king of Deutz’s rosé trilogy is crafted around a fine structure and deep-set chalk minerality that elevate it to another spiritual level. The electric energy of 2002 contrasts the grand proportions of intensity built over a decade in the cellar. Delicate and elegant, with an exquisite air of rose petals, black cherries, raspberries and wild strawberries, rich with plum cake, baked apples, cherry kernel, anise, vanilla, honey, even toffee and Christmas cake spice, yet never heavy or clumsy. A triumph of pinot noir from a sensational vintage, exemplifying profound generosity and inexplicable complexity, while grasping impeccable freshness, detail and purity. One of the most triumphant wines to emerge from this great house in the modern era.
