Unique, this great wine is a time travel in the heart of the first champagnes.

Seductive sweetness, 

standards transcended,

you will never forget it.

Memories of a great wine

Konrat Velours is a time travel, in the heart of the Enlightenment, at the creation of champagne.

We fulfilled a wish for You : recreate a great wine of botrytized sweet champagne with very gentle and lasting bubbles.

 

We did it thanks to an elaboration over several years, and a vinification reproducing the traditional methods.

With its strong identity, Konrat Velours (Velvet) offers a perfect balance between sweet dosage and freshness. The oak cask vinification, smartly controlled, gives an incomparable aromatic complexity dedicated to the great laying down wines.

Velours had been unbottled for eternity.

Vinification & Blend

  • Dosage : Sweet

  • Grapes from the village of Montigny-sous-Châtillon

  • Old vines selected

  • The best sand-lime terroirs for the minerality

  • Winemaking according to the lunar calendar

 

  • The best clay-limestone terroirs for rich primary aromas

  • Ageing on lees during nine months, in oak barrels, tuns and Dame Jeanne

  • Malolactic fermentation

  • After pressing, the wine improves alone, without operation till the blend

  • Blend in descending order : Chardonnay, Meunier, Pinot noir.​​
