Deutz is the epitome of understated excellence. Founded in 1838, the House is situated not in the conspicuously commercial centres of Reims or Epernay, but amongst the vineyards of one of the region's greatest villages: Ay-Champagne. This sums up Deutz's approach, in which style is always matched by substance. Over time, the brand has been rewarded with numerous gongs. It is has won silver, bronze and regional medals at Decanter's annual World Wine Awards, while at London's prestigious International Wine Challenge, Champagne Deutz won gold and silver awards for both its Brut and Rose styles of Champagne. The winery's most recent Deutz Classic Brut release was awarded a silver medal in the Decanter 2009 World Wine Awards.
