  • and gnocchi in a truffle cream. 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.
