NV Marc Hébrart Brut Rosé
57% Chardonnay, 43% Pinot Noir, with 7% still red wine, from the Mareuil-Sur-Aÿ 1er Cru. Aged sur lie for 24 months entirely in stainless steel. Undergoes full malolactic fermentation. Jean-Paul Hebrart took over his father Marc’s business in the Vallee de la Marne in 1997. Marc had been producing Champagne since 1964 and has been a Special Club member since 1985. Hebrart farms over 34 acres most notably in the grand cru villages of Ay, Chouilly and Oiry, but also some excellent premier cru holdings. 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 taut, brilliant feel.
