Marc Hébrart is a small but exciting producer in the Vallée de la Marne, who produces pinot-noir dominated Champagnes from the firm’s own high-quality vineyards in Mareuil, the neighbouring village to Aÿ. Hébrart used to provide grapes to some of the big houses before more recently choosing to bottle its produce under its own name.
Chardonnay makes up the smaller part of the house blend, and no pinot meunier isused. Jean-Paul Hébrart, the current owner and winemaker, inherited the property from his parents and has been in charge of the day-to-day running since the tender age of 19. The wines here are full-flavoured with excellent balance and length. Only a small percentage of the wines is exported, with most of production entirely swallowed up by the French themselves!
