Nestled in the 1er Cru village of Chamery, Champagne Perseval-Farge is the estate of Benoist and Isabelle Perseval, whose family has had roots in Champagne since the 18th Century.
Les Goulats Premier Cru is a single vineyard bottling made from a character-laden blend of Chardonnay, Petit Meslier, Pinot Gris, and Arbannae. Vinified in stainless steel, then aged in a blend of stainless steel and barrel, much of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. After over two years, the Champagne is disgorged without dosage.
"The NV Chamery Premier Cru Les Goulats is a blend of 55% Arbane, Fromenteau (Pinot Gris) and Petit Meslier with 45% Chardonnay (which is fermented separately) from the vintages 2011 (78%), 2010 (15%) and 2009 (7%). Bottled in 2013 and disgorged in November 2017, this cuvée opens with a perfectly ripe, intense yet clear and precise bouquet of white fruits and citrus notes. On the palate, this is a very clear, fresh and complex Champagne with lots of lemon juice flavors (probably due to the Arbanne component). It's a juicy and very citrusy blend of great intensity and purity but also remarkable complexity. Tight and fresh on the palate, this is a really bright and energetic blend with challenging citric acidity and complex expression. a gorgeous wine that just needs time."

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
