  • That means it's terrific with plump oysters,
  • sauteéd scallops in garlicky butter
  • and gnocchi with creamy truffles. Yum.

  • Denis, Anne and son Benoît Velut's 20 acre organic farm is located in Montgueux, a outlier region in the Aube with an abundance of chalky soil and where Chardonnay is king. Founded by Denis' grandfather as a recoltant/manipulant, their Lumiere et Craie, ("It sounds better than Blanc de Blancs"), translates literally as light and chalk, further driving home the point.
