Champagne Hebrart Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru
Champagne Hebrart Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru from France
The Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Champagne from Marc Hebrart is a stunning example of a hand crafted Champagne. This boutique vegan Champagne has a long finish and a delightful biscuity flavour that lingers and teases the tongue in different ways. Serve lightly chilled with seafood platters and oysters or just enjoy with friends when only a decent bottle of Champagne will suffice.
Marc Hebrart and his wife started making Champagne in 1963, adding to the land little by little due to the high price of land in Champagne. In 1983, their son Jean-Paul started his own small production. In 1997 the family created E.A.R.L. Champagne Hebrart by merging the two enterprises together, making Jean-Paul the director of the company. Their land now covers 12.5 hectares over 65 plots at Oiry and Chouilly which are Grand Cru terroirs, and Mareuil-sur-Ay, Bisseuil and Avenay-Val-d'Or which are Premier Cru terroirs. In the vineyard, natural methods are used rather than insecticides.
Fermentation has traditionally been done in enameled steel tanks; thermo-regulated stainless steel was purchased in 2003, but Hébrart says that the difference in quality isn't very pronounced. Since 2002, Jean Paul Hébrart has been experimenting with fermentation in barrel for some old-vine parcels. Remuage is by hand and dégorgement is carried out around 6 months before commercialisation
A beautifully crafted vigneron Champagne, complex, elegant and stylish with a long, biscuity finish.
