Hebrart's Rose is all class and has been a personal favourite for more than a decade. This is my 'go-to' wine! Decanter Magazine's "Top 10 Grower Champagnes to Try"- Equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, sourced from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, this encases its exuberant fruit within a sleek, racy structure, feeling succulently ripe yet imparting an elegant impression, thanks to its silky texture and graceful overall balance. 17.5 pts -Peter Liem
Graced with Hébrart’s delicate touch, this magnificent cuvée embodies everything that makes Mareuil such a gorgeous terroir for refined rosé. An elegant dash of just 6.5% Mareuil pinot noir red wine creates a pretty, bright pale-salmon hue and delightful perfume of strawberry, red cherry, pink pepper and rose petal, uniting fragrant restraint with red fruit presence and outstanding poise and persistence. It contrasts primary, precocious freshness with the gorgeous, succulent fruit generosity that defines Mareuil – no small task, especially in the warm 2015 season. Its fragrant perfume lingers from start to finish, holding very long, flattering and characterful, sustained by beautifully poised acidity and the prominent, fine, signature chalk minerality of the village. 94pts Tyson Stelzer 'Champagne Guide 2020-2021'
