Since 1838 Deutz has been based in the Grand Cru village of Ay, just west of Epernay. By the late 19th Century Deutz became a much sought after Champagne consumed by many heads of state and royalty. In 1983 the Rouzaud family, owners of Louis Roederer, purchased Deutz and installed the talented Fabrice Rosset as the CEO.
The Deutz style continues to be understated, refined, and made to exacting standards. In addition to their property in Ay, Deutz has acquired vineyards in the Cotes des Blanc and have secured long term contracts with their grower partners, all of which practice sustainable vineyard management. Mr Rosset was responsible for engineering the success of Roederer's premium cuvee Cristal, and has introduced his own line of prestige cuvees, Amour de Deutz. Under the leadership of Mr Rosset, Deutz is again a much sought after brand with significant market presence in Europe and the US.
