Thomas Perseval ‘Grand Cuvée’ 2014 Champagne Magnum
New to Green Man Wines but we are very impressed with this range of organic, grower champagne from Thomas Perseval.
Thomas has a small farm of 6 parcels, 2.5ha, based in Chamery in Montagne de Reims, he works organically and is certified organic since 2012. Winemaking is carried out with as little intervention as possible and with no dosage (the process in which a bit of sugar is mixed with wine and added to each bottle before the cork goes in to balance it out). Perseval is part of a wider regional movement of growers seeking a purer expression of fruit and terroir through careful sustainable management of the vines and less intervention in the cellar.
The Grand Cuvée is an equal blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, based solely on the 2014 vintage. Many of us were thinking Christmas Day when we tasted this. A very special champagne. Citrus fruit, almond, ripe apple, honey and a creamy mousse, A champagne full of energy, minerality, precision and strength.
I am afraid given the size of this producer we have limited availability in this range but if you have an interest in Champagne, please come visit the shop or give us a call, our shelves are bursting with a great range of diverse tasting champagnes, showcasing old and new styles.
