Hebrart’s old-vine ‘Selection Brut NV’ has to be one of the knockout bargains available. Only the first free run juice is used in the blend, giving a purity and vivid expression to the wine. Wonderful, lifted aromatics of spicy, red fruits with lifted white floral, citrus overlays. Textured and full on the palate, there is spine of mineral acidity that finishes fresh and leaves you wanting more. Hebrart has always been one of my favourite producers, consistently over-delivering and just gets better with every release. As one of only five Champagne producers to be named in ‘Wine and Spirit’ magazine’s ‘Top 100 Wineries of the World’, take advantage of the pricing before they became too famous!
A magnificent entry cuvée that articulates the inimitable talent of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ to magnificently juxtapose the elegance and the presence of pinot noir. For its age, pinot noir predominance and generous reserves, it upholds impressive freshness of Mareuil old-vine lift in precocious red cherry and red berry fruits and waves of anise and fruit mince spice. It concludes with an enticing and seamless fanfare of vibrant morello cherry acidity and wellharmonised dosage. It’s at once succulent and juicy and at the same time lively and fresh, with the pronounced salty chalk minerality of Mareuil tapped as only old vines can do. All hail the great 2013/2012 duo! 94pts Tyson Styelzer 'Champagne Guide 2020-2021'
