"Only 60 cases imported of this cuvee per year!
Denis and Anne Velut’s tiny 7.7 hectare organic farm resides in Montgueux, a singular terroir for its combination of soils found in no other part of Champagne. Concentrated ancient chalk soils have always dictated that, in contrast to typical Aube plantings, Chardonnay dominates here. Indeed, Montgueux has long been a source of high-quality Chardonnay. What makes the wines produced solely of Montgueux fruit unique is that the racy cut of chalky minerality is here infused with smoky gunflint that results from the presence of silex. This geological anomaly gives rise to wines of distinct, mysterious charm. Velut uses no chemical fertilizers and is a third generation winemaker from a family whose viticultural history spans centuries." -Importer
"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.
Montgueux is the “White hill of Aube”, we created a cuvée “pure Chardonnay”, entitled 'Lumiere et Craie' (Light and Chalk). It is made by blending wines from old vines and first juices from the pressing. Full and ample, it will offer you the pleasure of a moment of perfect equilibrium." -Winery
