Jean Velut Témoignage 2012 Magnum
Gorgeously fresh nose, with bread, green apple and toast. The first sip is delightfully easy going but as it goes down there is a complexity and depth that steps out at you. Brilliant acidity and brightness on the mid to late. Lovely depth, concentration and sweetness coming through as it opens. A gorgeously drinkable wine from a fabulous vintage.
One of the very few producers in the village of Montgueux and for us, one of the very best. He works with 7.7 hectares of mostly Chardonnay creating a playful style of wine that flirts with oxidation. Their wines charm from the outset and their Lumiere et Craie is a fascinating wine made from reserve wines, (does not have a "base year"). Creamy, layered and complex.
