Thomas Perseval, 1er Cru Tradition Champagne NVRegular price $75.00 Save $-75.00
Variety: 45% Pinot Noir, 45% Pinot Meunier, 10% Chardonnay
Farming just 2.5 hectares, fully converted to organics in 2012, young farmer/ winemaker Thomas has a strong foothold in tradition. He weaves his understanding of it into his outlook on the future of the region, as well into his own approach. Like the man himself, the wines are full of honest charm. Production is between 12-15,000 bottles per year, and aged in barrel, the wines boast a richness in the glass without losing any lift. His grandparents began the family domaine in the village of Chamery in the Montagne de Reims.
Tradition is a blend of all three of the main Champagne varieties from Premier Cru villages in Reims. 30% of the juice is aged in barrels. While this is marked as a non-vintage wine, all the fruit comes from 2012 and does not get disgorged until December of 2020—that’s about eight years on the lees!
