The wines of Marc Hebrart are always punching above their weight class which made this a perfect choice to celebrate Holly reaching a new professional goal as she too, routinely exceeds expectations.

This bottle of “Cuvée de Réserve” was disgorged in October of 2019 and made exclusively with 1er Cru fruit from a variety of vineyards. As usually, predominately Pinot Noir with a dollop of Chardonnay. In the glass, it’s a deep straw color with a persistent mousse. On the nose, there are slightly oxidative notes of apples, brioche, meringue, and nuts. On the palate, the wine is dry and the bubbles are tiny and almost creamy. Confirming the apple fruit, but also with some peach, toasted nuts and and hit of lemons and minerals on the finish. Everything is very nicely balanced and satisfying. To me, this is a way more interesting alternative to Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label.

Delightful brioche, lemon curd aromas. Dry but balanced - frothy. Very drinkable.

Good. A true brut stylistically with a fair amount of dosage. More than I prefer tbh but everyone liked it. Creamy. Lots of crisp apple, pear, white peach, strawberries

Disgorged June 2015 so 3.5 years age on cork. Racy and elegant, this drinks like a wine with more Chardonnay in the blend than Hebrart uses. Beautifully balanced with pear, green apple, chalk and citrus on the nose and palate and an entrancing, long finish. Fairly high acidity so a good match for food as well as on its own.
