Jean Velut Témoignage 2013
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 vintage with enormous potential that continues to grow in reputation.
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.
