Champagne Hebrart Brut Rose 1er Cru NV - Wine

Tasting Notes

Light salmon rose colour, biscuit and brioche dominating on the nose. This rose has complex aromas of red fruit, particularly strawberry and raspberry flavours throught to a long flavoursome finish. A rich and elegant style to accompany any meal.

Production Notes

As a blended rose, or a "rose d'assemblage", this Champagne is a blend of white juice from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Champagne vineyards, with a small proportion of red wine made from Pinot Noir in Mareuil-sur-Ay; prior to the secondary fermentation in the bottle. Known as Mareuil Rouge, it is an outstanding contributor to the blend and makes for a very serious gastronomic Champagne. This Champagne has spent 25 months on its lees, enhancing its texture and fragrance.

Critics Reviews

Vinous 93pts (tasted Nov 18) - The NV Brut Rosé is another gorgeous wine in this range. Hebrart deftly manages fruit intensity and energy in a Brut Rose that positively sizzles with energy. Cranberry, white pepper, mint, crushed rocks and chalk add to the wine's taught brilliant feel. There is so much to admire and enjoy in this pure, crystalline Rose.

Producer Profile

Marc Hebrart 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, Hebrart’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 Vallee 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 cuvees and to control the quality from the vineyard to the winemaking. In the vineyard, natural methods are used to cultivate the vines. In 2014, Hebrart was quoted as being among the 100 Best Wine Producers in the World by Wine&Spirits Magazine.
