Sommelier: Deutz

Put up your Deutz! For romance, think French. For honeymoons, do Paris. For celebrations, demand Deutz Champagne. Like no other wine, this champagne brings a certain happiness to the heart. Just close your eyes, imagine lavender and remember sipping Champagne in some odd little café where the food is crazy good and the waiters are just plain crazy. OK … you must have been drinking Deutz! It’s so delicious, so full of sophistication and so overflowing with style. Crafted from the traditional blend of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay, Deutz Brut Classic NV is filled with energy, finesse and the rich flavors of flowers, herbs and ripe citrus.

Although popular and plentiful overseas, here Deutz is elusive as true love. But now, lucky for us, Deutz Brut Classic NV Champagne is available at Bin 77 Bistro & SideBar, where it pairs perfectly with their Southern Style Cioppino. Or go retail at Whole Foods, where the small-format bottles sell for under $30. Nothing is more decadent than sparkling perfectly paired or perfectly naked.
