ABOUT JEAN VELUT
The story of Champagne Jean Velut, like that of many great wines, is one of risk taking and thinking outside the box. Montgueux, in the Aube, was a completely unknown satellite commune of Champagne where people grew grains and some grapes for personal consumption. In early 1970s, as the demand for Champagne began to grow, Jean Velut realized that he was, literally, standing on a new future for him and his family.
Montgueux is a massive outcropping of chalk emerging dramatically from the flat fields and perfect for growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
ABOUT PIERRE BRIGANDAT – CÔTE DES BARS
Bertrand Brigandat made his first vintage of Champagne from his family’s vines in the Cotes des Bars in 1993 after nearly three decades of selling almost their entire production to négociant houses. While Laurent Perrier still buys 40% of the annual harvest, Bretrand has settled firmly into being a “grower”of the highest quality. Since taking over as winemaker he has worked to change the vineyard work to organic, although he also incorporates aspects of biodynamic practices.
