N.V. Marc Hebrart “Selection” Premier Cru Brut Champagne.
Jean-Paul Hebrart’s Champagne are turning heads and are now hotly sought after, he looks like the next superstar of the region, even though they have been a top quality house since the early Eighties. Hebrart has more than sixty small plots of amazing sites in Premier Cru and Grand Cru areas, with mostly Pinot Noir, but with top Grand Cru Chadonnay parcels as well. All this and super hand-crafted winemaking add up to amazing quality and very interesting wines, this is a thinking man’s Champagne estate and Jean-Paul Hebrart is an artist at his trade. The “Selection” Brut is rich and stylish with toast, hazelnut, orange blossom, white currant, lemon and fig notes that are layered across the palate. This is a pure and savvy Champagne that is a celebration in its self.
