Importer notes from Wine Traditions:
"Perseval-Farge is a 4-hectare estate in the 1er Cru village of Chamery which is in the northern part of the Montagne de Reims, known as the Petite Montagne. The Perseval family traces its roots in the village back to the early 18th century and today it is Benoist and Isabelle Perseval who carry on the tradition... when Benoist and Isabelle’s son, Henri, joined the family full time in 2020, they officially entered into conversion for organic certification... Besides his commitment to sustainability in the vineyard, Benoist has worked to decrease the use of SO2 in his winemaking and at 26 to 35mg per liter, he uses one fifth of the norm.
The “C. de Reserve” blends a majority of Chardonnay with small amounts of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The Chardonnay comes primarily from the “Les Spectres” vineyard, a parcel planted with a variety of clones “en massale” and an average age of 30 years. A gentle pressing is done with a vertical press and the juice is vinified both in stainless steel vats and in barrels (not new). About two-thirds of the wine goes through a malo-lactic fermentation. This cuvée blends several vintages with at least 50% being reserve wine. The Champagne rests 48 months “sur lattes” before being disgorged. The dosage is 3.5g/L.
