A pretty light gold color with sparse, tiny bubbles. The nose is instantly attractive with lemon peel and unmistakable chalk up front. The fruit here is pretty amazing with honeydew, pears, and a touch of mango. Green and red apples sing throughout, especially as the glass warms a bit. Floral accents are the showstopper here with pretty white flowers and delicate orchards. It’s all so very fresh with this wine, as befits a Hebrart champagne.
I’m a huge fan of all of the Special Club bottles that I’ve had the pleasure to try. This is easily one of the best. 55/45 PN/CH primarily from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Masterfully crafted, this is both sleek and comforting. Beautiful purity of fruit and laser like focus. Nice acidity, not racy or bracing but smooth. There’s an incredible level of depth here. Tasted blind, no doubt I would have named a much more expensive bottle.
The attack is focused with much clarity. It’s almost hard to put into words why this is so damn good but trust me, it is. A wave of tropical fruits like pineapple and kumquat along with more mangoes. Bread with a light dusting of cinnamon is a pleasant surprise to with dried herbs. Cherries begin to come into view on the long finish and you’re left smiling by the trace of warm spice. Normally I would say let these sit for a few years but don’t bother, this sexy thing is singing right now. — 3 minutes ago
