Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru, Champagne Marc Hebrart NV

Tasting Note

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

Producer Note

Marc Hébrart and his wife started making Champagne in 1963, adding to the land little by little due to the high price of land in Champagne. In 1983, their son Jean-Paul started his own small production. In 1997 the family parent's and son's Champagne Hebrart merged together, making Jean-Paul the director of the company. Their land now covers 15.5 hectares, over 68 plots spread across the two Marne's River banks. On the right bank (Côtes des Blancs), Hébrart Grand Cru terroirs of Avize, Oiry and Chouilly are producing fine, ripe and mineral Chardonnays. On the left bank (Vallée de la Marne and Montagne de Reims) Aÿ, Mareuil-sur- Aÿ, Bisseuil and Avenay-Val-d'Or are Premier Cru terroirs producing juicy and structured Pinot Noirs. This diversity and owned supply allows Jean-Paul, to create very precise cuvées controlling the grape quality from growing to winemaking. In the vineyard, natural methods are used rather than insecticides. In 2014 Hébrart was quoted as being among the 100 Best Wine Producers in the World by Wine & Spirits Magazine.

Winemaking

Fermentation has traditionally been done in enamelled steel tanks; thermo-regulated stainless steel was purchased in 2003, but Hébrart says that the difference in quality is not very pronounced. Since 2002, Jean Paul Hébrart has been experimenting with fermentation in barrel for some old-vine parcels. Remuage is by hand and dégorgement is carried out around 6 months before commercialisation.
