Champagne Marc Hebrart Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru NV

A very elegant Champagne that has a fine mousse, with
a lovely, fine and biscuity character.


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
This Chardonnay comes from the Grand Cru terroirs of Chouilly and Oiry and the
Premier Cru terroir of Mareuil sur Aÿ. The vines, which have an average age of 40
years, are grown on low cretaceous chalk slopes, ideal for Chardonnay planting. For
a number of years, Marc Hébrart has applied sustainable viticultural practices to his
vines and makes his wines in small batches in order to preserve the personality of
each parcel and terroir.


Winemaking
Each parcel was gently pressed and vinified separately to preserve the individual
characteristics of the terroir. Fermentation took place in small temperature controlled
tanks followed by malolactic fermentation. Dégorgement was carried out
approximately six months prior to release.


Tasting Note
A beautifully crafted vigneron Champagne, complex, elegant and stylish with a
long, biscuity finish.
