Marc Hebrart N.V. Champagne Premier Cru "Mes Favorites", Mareuil-sur-Ay
The Hebrart family have been bottling their own Champagnes since 1964 and it is now Jean-Paul Hebrart that is running the domaine. The Mes Favorites, (My favorites) comes from the domaines top parcels, and is meant to pay tribute to their terroir. Made from 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay and is a thrilling combination of concentration and ethereal texture. Getting caramelized hazelnuts, poached apples, with the skin, bready and pie crust notes with a brown butter like finish that stains the palate and you just keep tasting it. Serious enough for the super learned grower Champagne lover but, also loveable enough for people looking for a sexy glass of fun bubbles. Not easy to hits both those notes. Over performs for sure.
