Jean Velut “Lumiere et Craie” Blanc de Blanc Brut Magnum

Engang var Montgueux regnet som Champagnes svar på Montrachet i Bourgogne – altså den absolutte top og i rig, overdådig stil. I dag er centrum i Champagne flyttet nordpå, men i det sydlige Montgueux laver enkelte bønder stadig eminent champagne på det kalkede terroir. Denis Velut er en af dem og hans champagner tilhører den lille gruppe af must-drink, hvis man skal forstå, hvad champagne også kan være udover mainstream boblevand. Velut laver ægte håndværksvin, der senest har fået Parkers mand i Champagne op at ringe med klokken. Vi har købt en lille mængde – mere kan man ikke få ud af Denis, der aldrig producerer over 30000 flasker om året. Altså omkring en promille af, hvad Moët & Chandon producerer af bare én vin92 point Parker: “The Velut NV Brut Blanc de Blanc de Montgueux L0940 delivers a striking nose and refreshing palate impression of lime and lemon laced with ginseng, white pepper, and salt. It delivers a creamy texture and mouth-coating richness without losing brightly citric snap and refreshment, and allied to a chalkiness that calls to mind a dense, cool block. The palate-staining finish offers not just saliva-inducement but genuine complexity in its expression of fleur de sel, while chalk, citrus, and herbs cavort in near-kaleidoscopic array. This beauty represents outstanding value for its appellation and will, I suspect, remain deliciously fascinating for another 4-5 years.” Fremragende blanc de blancs fra Velut. Tindrende ren og salt mineralitet, æbleskræl, limesaft og kridt. 92 point fra Parker.

Light yellow-gold. Spice-accented aromas of nectarine, pear, anise and smoky lees. Lively and precise on entry, then fleshy and broad in the mid-palate, showing energetic pit fruit, melon and honeysuckle flavors and a touch of chalky minerality. A long, bright finish features notes of taut citrus fruit and honeysuckle with great clarity.
