The Maison Deutz was born in 1838 in Ay, in the Champagne region, founded by William Deutz and Pierre Geldermann, both from Aachen. When settled in Ay opened a small wine shop, buying wines from local producers and by affixing their label. But, they were firmly convinced that the foundation of the great wines we were to be a particularly suitable vineyard, bought in 1838 a first parcel of land and started to produce grapes, vinificandola in their cellar. William Deutz, who had previously worked for Bollinger, gave its contribution of experience in the cultivation and vinification of grapes and Pierre Geldermann cared appearance financial and business of the Company. In the following years the Maison Deutz was forced to cede to Louis Roederer 63% of the property, following some unsuccessful investments in New Zealand and the United States. Over time, the domaine has expanded with the acquisition of new cru, both near Ay, in both the "cote des Blancs" and annually produces about 600,000 bottles of good Champagne. The vines of properties, however, are not sufficient to provide the necessary quantity of grape, and therefore the Deutz turns to local farmers of proven expertise able to guarantee a flawless quality of their product. With the advent of Louis Reoderer, the winery has been completely renovated; here musts fermented in stainless steel tanks in each of which is carefully identified the parcel from which the grapes. Then the wines are put to rest in the cellar completely underground, which reaches up to 60 meters below ground level. Today all the activity of the Company shall be under the control and responsibility of Fabrice Rosset. Flagship product of this Maison is the Brut Reserve, a wine with a fine perlage and very intense, produced by a clever blend of three grape varieties typical of the Champagne: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
