Details of wine

The unique territory of Montgueux, where we find the Domaine Jean Velut, is famous for its micro-climate, the soils ideally exposed to the south / south-east and the oldest rocky subsoil in the entire Champagne region.

The combination of these elements gives rise to the Velut cuvées, dedicated to an audience of connoisseurs and lovers of no-frills bubbles.

Representative synthesis of the territory of Montgueux is the Champagne Lumière et Craie Brut. A 100% Chardonnay Champagne, made with 100% reserve wines and aged for five years in the cellar.

Bubbly produced with minimal intervention on plants in the name to preserve the qualities transmitted by these soils and respect the biodiversity of the region.

Color

Giallo paglierino con qualche riflesso verdognolo.

Smell

I profumi richiamano la frutta candita, con leggere nuances minerali e speziate.

Taste

Al palato attacca con una notevole vivacità dovuta all'ottima freschezza, e si caratterizza per un gusto sapido. Chiude con un finale persistente.

Pairings

Molto versatile dal punto di vista gastronomico, è perfetto per l'aperitivo, dove accompagna diverse tipologie di finger food. Ottimo anche con primi e secondi piatti a base di pesce e crostacei, è assolutamente da provare con dei ricchi spiedini di gamberi e verdure.

CELLAR

Name: Jean Velut
Address: 9 rue du Moulin - Montgueux (France)

In the late 1960’s, Jean Velut & his wife, Huguette, had to give up their farming land near Troyes as the city expanded. The family had some land in the nearby village of Montgueux. They decided to work towards developing a viable vineyard there. They started planting and farming some small vine parcels: their first harvest was only 639 kg. Nowadays, their son, Denis, is responsible for the vineyard. He farms about 7.5 hectares (18.5 acre). The hill of Montgueux borders the Paris basin. The soil has a calcareous nature: about 600 meters deep in chalk. In summer, this keeps freshness and moisture, the heat is stored between seasons, and the rain is well drained in winter: the vines thrive best in the southerly and east -southerly sunny slopes where they are planted.
