Cinnamon and apple pie on the nose, classic green apple on the palate. Medium long finish with mint acid. Nothing spectacular though. — 9 days ago
2021/2/27 with birthday delivery from Joel Robuchon. I hadn’t had this in years, and while I remember liking it before, it was wonderful this time around. The caramel and hazelnut is reminiscent of mature Champagne, but there’s still freshness and minerality. — 16 days ago
Clear blonde with a multitude of fine bubbles, really attractive and nice perlage. Very pure aromas on the nose with honeyed toast, white grapes, and a little peach. A touch of oak and apricot. There’s a definite sense of rusticity here and it’s quite welcome here. After plenty of time, those fruit notes become more mature with dates and the faintest hint of dried cherries.
An outstanding grower champagne and one that, for me, really epitomizes the genre. A bit stark and austere, which is a good thing. Half Chardonnay, half Pinot Noir with an extra brut dosage of 3 g/l. The terroir truly speaks here hailing from Bisseuil and Mareuil-Sur-Ay. Very nice acidity and quite vinous in nature.
The palate is generous and inviting especially if you give it time. Almonds, lime zest, and plenty of brioche bread. Green apples with an earthy element as the Pinot begins to take over. A truly exciting champagne that will deliver even more if you let it sit for a few more years. But I can’t blame you if you don’t.

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. — 13 days ago
