90 points "A little past it's prime. Great brioche and acidity, honeyed, but the fruit is a little more subdued than I'd like. Perhaps this is the house style?"

93 points ""Light yellow. Smoky orange, lemon pith and date aromas are complicated by pungent herbs, minerals and dried flowers. Fleshy, impressively pliant and deep, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors, chewy texture and a whiplash of dusty minerals on the finish. I suspect that this impressively taut wine will continue to gain weight and power for at least a decade. 93(+?) points" " Best 2008-2018

94 points ""The 1998 Cuvee William Deutz flows from the glass with compelling layers of flowers, apricots, succulent pears, minerals and smoke. This Champagne offers a gorgeous combination of mineral-driven freshness with a richly-textured core of fruit. The Cuvee William Deutz should continue to drink beautifully for at least another decade."" Best 2008-2015
