Marc Hébrart 'Mes Favorites' Vieilles Vignes Brut
The facts first—It is 75% PN from Mareuil, 25% Chard also from Mareuil. Old vines, massale selection. Deg 4/2018. 60% 2014,
20% 2013, 20% 2012.
It’s from his favorite parcels in Mareuil, and is intended as a tribute to its terroir.
It has a truly noble PN fragrance, leading to an utter masterpiece of weightless concentration, as huge and yet as penetrable
as a cumulous cloud. Mareuil is clearly great but it’s also somewhat inscrutable; it has some of the malt of Aÿ, some mirabelle
confiture, an almost gingery spice and top notes of chalk. This wine has great, gossamer opulence.
