2017 Marc Hébrart "Special Club"Brut, Champagne, France - 1.5L MAG
ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
The 2017 Brut Blanc de Blancs Special is an attractive wine that shows the mid-weight style of that year. All the elements are nicely balanced, but the 2017 is ultimately described as a wine that captures all of the Hébrart signatures in a slightly attenuated fashion. There's plenty of brightness in the citru and floral flavors. Drink this over the next handful of years.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
The Hébrart wines are truly of both place and person, the kind, welcoming and generous qualities that Jean-Paul Hébrart exudes can be seen in all of his Champagnes. Jean-Paul Hébrart took over Marc Hébrart from his father in 1997. His father had been producing estate bottled wines since 1964 and joined the Club Trésors in 1985 Jean-Paul has slowly developed the estate in the last 20 years to one of the very finest grower estates in the Marne. The basis for these outstanding wines are the privileged holdings in Aÿ, including the newly purchased plots in Le Léon, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, and Dizy in the Grande Vallée as well as Avize, Oiry and Chouilly in the Côte and recently acquired vineyards in Louvois in the Montagne.
Peter Liem writes of Hébrart on Champgneguide.net: “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 represents excellent value for the money.”
