“Jean-Paul Hébrart has been in charge of this estate since his father, Marc Hébrart, retired in 1997. Marc Hébrart had been producing estate-bottled champagne since 1964. Hébrart’s wines see a respectable amount of lees aging—in general, a minimum of 24 to 30 months for the rosé and Cuvée de Réserve, and 36 months for the Sélection—but he would like to hold them back for an even longer period of time.

Hébrart’s wines have a broad appeal: if you like to think about your wines, they’re intellectually engaging enough to satisfy you; on the other hand, if you’re just looking to drink, they’re simply delicious. The wines are full and generous without being weighty, complex and soil-driven without being demanding. Overall, the entire range is of consistently high quality, and Hébrart is quickly becoming one of the finest grower estates in the Grande Vallée.”

Marc Hebrart Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru NV
36 bottles available
$39 per bottle

92 points View From the Cellar: “The couple of wines I have tasted in the past from Jean-Paul Hébrart (who has been in charge of the family domaine since 1997) I have liked very well, and I was delighted to see samples of his entire current range arrive in my office this past June. The new release of his non-vintage Blanc de Blancs offers up a truly lovely bouquet of delicious apples, pears, crème patissière, a complex base of chalky soil tones and spring flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite young, with very promising complexity, a fine core, slightly coarse mousse, but excellent length and grip on the focused and impressive finish. This is one of those grower Champagnes where one trades a touch of elegance on the palate for superbly complex raw materials (as is the case with the wines from Vazart-Coquart for instance in Chouilly), and it is a trade that (in this case) is pretty easy to make, as this wine really shows lovely complexity and will be even better with a bit more bottle age.”

Marc Hebrart Brut Selection 1er Cru NV
36 bottles available
$39 per bottle

91+ points View From the Cellar: “The iteration of Jean-Paul Hébrart’s non-vintage “Brut Sélection” bottling is once again made up of a blend of sixty-five percent pinot noir and thirty-five percent chardonnay. The vins clairs all go through full malo and the wine is aged sur latte fully four years prior to disgorgement. The wine delivers a refined bouquet of apple, white peach, a gentle touch of nutmeg, patissière, complex soil tones, gentle nuttiness and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a fine core, lovey focus and grip, elegant mousse and very good length and grip on the classy finish. This is lovely juice that is wide open today, but will continue to drink well for many years to come.”

Marc Hebrart Brut Rose 1er Cru NV
36 bottles available
$45 per bottle

91 points View From the Cellar: “The current release of Jean-Paul Hébrart’s non-vintage Brut Rosé is composed of a fifty-fifty blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, with just over eight percent of the pinot noir in the blend still wine, which was aged for a year in cask prior to being added to the cuvée. The wine spends twenty-four months aging sur latte prior to disgorgement and delivers a fine nose of white cherries, melon, wheat toast, a fine base of soil and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nicely balanced, with a good core, bright acids, elegant mousse and quite good length and grip on the fairly complex finish. This has lovely appeal right out of the blocks, but should also keep nicely for a decade or so.”
