Year of starter:
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.
