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

Marc Hébrart practices sustainable viticulture, keeping chemical treatments to the strict minimum on the vines which have an average age of 30 years old. The 15.5 hectares of vineyard are spread across the two banks of the river Marne: in the sector of Mareuil, Avenay, Val d'Or, Bisseuil and the Grand Crus of the Côte des Blancs: Oiry and Chouilly.

Winemaking

Each parcel is vinified separately to preserve their individual personalities. Fermentation is in small tanks and the wine undergoes malo-lactic fermentation. Remuage is by hand and dégorgement is carried out around six months before commercialisation.

Tasting Note

Mature biscuity nose, complex flavour with hints of red apple and an impressively long finish.

Serving Suggestion

This Premier Cru Champagne is an ideal aperitif, or serve it with fresh starters, oysters and other cold, fresh seafood for a delectable treat.
