Champagne Marc Hebrart Cuvee Selection Brut 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes NV

An elegant, precise and mineral champagne, with hints
of pears and plum on the palate and a touch of
jasmine on the finish.


Producer Note
Marc Hébrart and his wife started making Champagne in 1963, adding plots little by
little due to the high price of land in Champagne. In 1997, Marc retired and his son
Jean-Paul became director. Their estate now covers 15.5 hectares, over 68 plots
spread across the Marne's two river banks. In the Côtes des Blancs, Hébrart’s Grand
Cru terroirs of Avize, Oiry and Chouilly produce fine, ripe and mineral Chardonnays.
The Premier Cru terroirs of Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Bisseuil and Avenay-Val-d'Or in the
Vallée de la Marne and Montagne de Reims produce juicy and structured Pinot
Noirs. This diversity and estate supply enables Jean-Paul to create very precise
cuvées and to control the quality from the vineyard to the winemaking. In the
vineyard, natural methods are used to cultivate the vines. In 2014, Hébrart was
quoted as being among the 100 Best Wine Producers in the World by Wine&Spirits
Magazine.


Vineyard
The Cuvée Selection Vielles Vignes is a cuvée produced from the best vineyards with
old vines, which produce berries with concentrated flavours. The Chardonnay
grapes come from Hébrart’s Grand Cru terroirs of Avize, Oiry and Chouilly, in the
Côtes des Blancs, which produce fine, ripe and mineral juice. The Pinot Noir
component comes from Vallée de la Marne above Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Here the old vines
grow on steep south facing slopes and the resulting grapes are concentrated and
rich, due to the deep root systems nourished by the clay layers in the soil. Mareuil-surAÿ is a Premier Cru terroir of 99% and is considered to be the highest rating among
Champagne's Premier Crus villages. Marc Hébrart practices sustainable viticulture
and keeps chemical treatments to a strict minimum.


Winemaking
Each parcel was gently pressed and vinified separately to preserve the individual
characteristics of the terroir. This wine is made from the "Coeur de Cuvée" or the
heart of the free-run juice. Fermentation took place in small temperature controlled
tanks followed by malolactic conversion. The wine was aged for a minimum of three
years in the cellar. Dégorgement was carried out approximately six months prior to
release.


Tasting Note
An elegant, precise and mineral Champagne, hints of pear and plum are
underpinned by a salty backbone and a touch of jasmine on the finish.
