Champagne Marc Hebrart Cuvee Special Club 1er Cru 2016

A food friendly Champagne, opulent and expressive,
with aromas of pure white fruits and hints of spice.


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
Created in 1971, the Club Trésors was the first Champagne winemaker's association
to advocate an approach to viticulture, based on standards of utmost quality and a
pure expression of terroir. Special Club Champagne is only made in outstanding
years and from the growers' own vineyards. The bottle is dedicated to the 28
winegrower’s most distinguished cuvées. The Pinot Noir grapes are selected from two
plots of 42 year old Vieilles Vignes: Faubourg d'Enfer and Croix Blanche both located
in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ; and the two Premier Cru plots of Cheuzelle and Pierre Robert,
located in Aÿ. The Chardonnay is selected from Oiry and Chouilly Grand Cru for 25%
of the blend. 25% also comes from two plots found in Mareil sur Ay: the Beauregard
plot (named after its amazing view of the Côtes de Blancs hills) and the Ramonette
plot. The vines have an average age of 45 years and produce concentrated,
powerful and opulent wines. Marc Hébrart practices sustainable viticulture, keeping
chemical treatments to a strict minimum.


Winemaking
Each parcel was gently pressed and vinified separately to preserve its individual
characteristics. This wine was made from the "Coeur de Cuvée" or the heart of the
free-run juice. Fermentation took place in small stainless steel tanks at controlled
temperatures of 16.5°C where the wine underwent malolactic conversion.
Dégorgement was carried out approximately six months prior to release. It was aged
for four years on its lees creating wonderful complexity.


Tasting Note
A cuvée full of elegance and finesse. Opulent aromas of white fruit lead to layered
complexity on the palate with citrus and mineral notes.
