What more is there to really say about the Marc Hebrart range of grower champagnes? Beautiful, beautiful wines and always so much fun. The fun continues here.
A delicate light pink color with a constant stream of fine bubbles. Smells of summer. That memory with the pretty girl on the beach, that’s what you get here. Cranberries and wild strawberries mingle with herbs and chalk. Loads of minerals and a bit of honeysuckle. Toast, cherries, and really pretty orchard fruits.
Balance and precision. That’s exactly what you will find here. 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir from Mareuil-Sur-Aÿ with 6.5% of the Pinot vinified as still red wine in neutral oak. Such striking depth and sleekness. Those summer berries dominate the palate but always maintains focus. Subtle herbs and spices with such purity of fruit. Really beautiful. — 3 days ago
We’re indulging in some Lanson, NV Brut Rosé, Champagne to begin the long weekend in Sonoma and Napa, California. ABV 12.5%. Disgorged on Feb 10, 2018.
We’re loving the views in Kenwood and soaking in the peaceful, bright, lovely sunset overlooking the rolling hills from our place.
This wine is pale salmon. It has prominent raspberry and lemon curd notes alongside bruised apple, bread dough, croissant, dried white flower, and blanched almond notes.

Looking at some rebuy ops this weekend I can get more of this 2010 or Krug MV at $133. So had to re-familiarize myself with the 2010 Dom. Quite typical, but overall just very good and not outstanding. The carbonation of this young Dom is a bit off putting. After some time this is evolving nicely. A really good champagne, but I will be buying more Krug — 11 days ago
For some reason now any black background Lightbox shot I took delectable will not accept. Really really annoying
Nose is very skeletal, dry and mineral, some lemon rind, lemon cake, lemon pith. Round nose for a Brut Nature. Really nice. Palate is bone dry but super juicy and wow is this mineral. I love this. Such a geeky zero dose bubbly. Man is this mineral like a Mosel. But it’s still got fruit and juiciness. Delish! Nice concentration and terrific lime zest flavors and finished chalky, slatey and fiercely mineral. Wow. Really delineated and linear. And a steal!
Now with air this is killer. More expansive and airy. Palate is sharp and has killer acids and freshness. Bracing! — 5 days ago
Based on 2012, May 17 disg. 1.5 g/l dosage. A little over 1.5 yrs since my last btl...this is straight fire! On the nose: roast hazelnut, lemon peel, lemon oil, soft vanilla, candied ginger, soft coppery notes...amazing intensity. On the palate: ginger, lime, nuts, cool mint, fantastic acidity, excellent density..slightly clipped finish, but otherwise faaantastic. — 5 days ago
Strong lemon-lime and hazelnut brioche and acorn nose, with a powdery dried magnolia-pineapple dusting. Silky smooth texturally, and lovely with a mineral feel, a citrus zing of tangerine pith and baked lemon tart and depth of capers and chamomile. Exquisite in unexpected ways. .

Sick nose here. Super expansive and elegant. Lemon pith, lemon jelly, lemon custard, really layered and just stunning. I mean really stunning. Mint, some spice. Just so unique and inviting. Palate is super elegant and pure. So clean and lithe. Delicious lemony fruit and lovely purity. I can tell this needs air and will get it. Lovely sap and mineral force on the finish. So well made and elegant. Lovey sap extends the finish but remains very elegant. Super long and sneaky.
With air the nose is more fruity. Some peach and citrus. Palate is concentrated and hugely linear with so many angles. Very pure, sappy and juicy. — 5 days ago
Champagne Spatlese and you’d never know. 30 grams of dosage! Nose is highly complex and aromatic with stunning toastiness. Some ripe peaches and citrus as well. Really captivating nose. Also an intriguing earthy scent. Palate has some sweetness but man is this masterful for the style. Gorgeous fruit, kiss of sweetness and awesome purity. Red cherries, nice acids, nice density. Not for everyone but I love it. Really energetic, linear and delineated. — 5 days ago

Very different side of N/V bubbles.
