Contrary to the majority of Champagne houses, G.F.DUNTZE do not practice the blending of wines issued from the main soils of Champagne area for the making of their cuvees.
They are therefore obliged to provide the greatest care in the selection of grape supplies and to reach the highest level in their trade as Champagne wine makers. This clear choice allows G.F. DUNTZE to reveal the soils of Champagne in a quite personal way.
This way their own style is revealed by nature and not caused by man action. his style is characterized by a distinguished and spontaneous generosity of the cuvees. The objective for each cuvee is to carry sensations of greediness, power and precision. In order to reveal the very essence of the soil from which each cuvee is issued, each of them is finely dosed (6.5 to 9 g/l) with its own
