Marc Hebrart MV ‘Sélection’ 1er Cru Brut, Champagne, France [375ml Half Bottle]

Winemaker / Chef du Cave: Jean-Paul Hébrart

Jean-Paul Hébrart took over the operations of Marc Hébrart Champagne in the Vallée de la Marne from his father Marc in 1997. This estate is not exactly new: Jean-Paul’s father has been producing champagne under the Marc Hébrart name since 1964 and has been a member of the Special Club since 1985. Hébrart farms 14 hectares of vines on 65 different sites in 6 villages: the 1er cru vineyards of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Avenay, Val d’Or and Bisseuil and the grand crus villages of Aÿ as well as Chouilly and Oiry in the Côte des Blancs. Each parcel is always vinified separately in glass lined stainless steel and ceramic tanks. He is slowly phasing out the ceramic as it is more difficult to control the temperature. Hébrart is also experimenting with barrel fermentation and indigenous yeast fermentation for some of his older vine parcels.

Grape Varieties: 65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay. Old vines (40+ years old and sélection massale) Pinot Noir from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ 1er Cru, Avenay Val d’Or 1er Cru and Chardonnay from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ 1er Cru and Bisseuil 1er Cru.

Reserve Wine: 55% 2017, 25% 2016, 20% 2015

Elevage: Stainless steel sur latte 24 months 

Dégorgement: September 15, 2020
