Mareuil is most famous for the quality of it's Pinot Noir, yet there are small parcels of exceptional Chardonnay. This component has given a fullness and richness to the wine while the fruit from the Cote des Blancs adds an aromatic lift and edge. Opulent and creamily textured yet kept in perfect balance, by vibrant, mineral acidity. Multi-layered and textured, this over delivers in every way.

On the gently south-facing slopes of Mareuil above Clos des Goisses, chardonnay takes on a fleshy generosity. Jean-Paul Hébrart presents a masterfully crafted take on this, in a blanc de blancs of bright, pale straw hue that heralds its elegant freshness. A core of mirabelle plum and white peach is accented with the zest of grapefruit and lemon sherbet in an approachable and succulent style of generous spice complexity and ripe fruit persistence. The salt minerality of Mareuil upholds freshness on the finish, amplified strategically by a well-placed touch of the structure of Chouilly/Oiry. The 2014 base is a fleshy style hinting at exotic, ripe pineapple, ready to drink now - 92pts Tyson Stelzer  'Champagne Guide 2020-2021
