Domaine Jean Velut was born more than sixty years ago when a family of wine growers discovered a terroir on the gentle slopes of Montgueux, buried under a stretch of wasteland.
Over the years, the fame of this terroir has grown exponentially, giving cuvées with great personalities.
Today at the head of the company we find Benoit which specializes in plant protection especially in terms of disease prevention.
Using typical treatments of organic agriculture, the vines are guaranteed to grow naturally and therefore protected from the numerous attacks it could suffer.
The wines produced by this Domaine, thanks to the chalky subsoils on which they are born, are elegant and characterized by freshness and salinity.
Muse of Jean Velut is the Champagne Témoignage Brut 2009, produced only in the best vintages. A blanc de blancs dedicated to demanding palates for its complex finesse, sophisticated elegance and great depth.

Name: Jean Velut Address: 9 rue du Moulin - Montgueux (France) Web Site: www.champagne-velut.fr
In the late 1960s, 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.
