Champagne Hebrart Cuvee de Reserve Brut 1er Cru NV - Wine

Tasting Notes

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

Production Notes

Each parcel was gently pressed and vinified separately to preserve the individual characteristics of the terroir. Fermentation took place in small temperature controlled tanks followed by malolactic fermentation. Degorgement was carried out approximately six months prior to release.

Critics Reviews

Vinous 91pts (tasted Nov 18) - The NV Brut Cuve?e de Reserve is gorgeous. Bright, energetic and focused, the Cuvee de Reserve offers a striking tension for a Pinot-based NV Champagne. There is level of translucent purity in the Brut Cuve?e de Reserve that is striking, Lemon confit, wild flowers, mint and almond notes all develop in an effortless, gracious Champagne that will drink well right out of the gate.

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.
