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 created E.A.R.L. Champagne Hébrart by merging the two enterprises together, making Jean-Paul the director of the company. Their land now covers 12.5 hectares over 65 plots at Oiry and Chouilly which are Grand Cru terroirs, and Mareuil-sur-Ay, Bisseuil and Avenay-Val-d'Or which are Premier Cru terroirs. In the vineyard, natural methods are used rather than insecticides. with the palate leading through to a fresh, clean and fruity finish.
