Premier Cru. This most recent iteration of Grower Rose NV (tasted 11/19 and based around the 2016 and 2015) has a quite clean and light nose of mineral and a hint of strawberry. The palate is also more taunt with clean minerals, blood orange and a hint of wild strawberry. D&M Tasting Notes
50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir,6.5% still red Pinot Noir from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ 1er Cru
Not surprisingly, sleek, comely and digitally fruity, yet it shows its fruit on a high white wire, like some iridescent filament snaking through darkness. Sitting in the glass it starts to smell like those little pink cookies (“Biscuits de Reims”) you see everywhere in the region. I’m always torn between feeling this is a smart wine that also wants to show you how sexy it is, or a sexy wine that wants you to know how smart it is. Yet of course, smart is sexy. I heard that from Noam Chomsky. Disg. 7/2016, we have 50% CH from Mareuil, vintage 2014—then 43.5% PN from Mareuil, vintage 2012-13—then 6.5% still PN from Mareuil vinified in neutral cask, vintage 2013. —Terry Theise, Importer
Continuing the family tradition of excellence in Champagne, Jean-Paul Hebrart farms 37 acres of vines on 68 different sites in 6 villages. These parcels are vinified separately to preserve the terroir of these distinct sites. Jean Paul is not dogmatic when it comes to his grapes and with so many sites (and neighbors) he cannot call himself biodynamic though he does strive towards minimizing synthetic products interfering with his wine’s sense of place.
Equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, sourced from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, this encases its exuberant fruit within a sleek, racy structure, feeling succulently ripe yet imparting an elegant impression, thanks to its silky texture and graceful overall balance.
