The 2015 Extra Brut Noces de Craie is fabulous. Rich, powerful and explosive, the 2015 exudes Pinot intensity, with layers of chalky, saline notes that run through a deep core of fruit. This is a decidedly virile style. The 2015 finishes with tremendous vinosity and all of the textural resonance that is typical of Champagnes from Aÿ. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: August, 2019. ... More details

Disgorged in April 2019, Hébrart's 2015 Extra-Brut Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru Noces de Craie is lovely, bursting with aromas of peach, pear, clear honey, white flowers and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, it is fleshy and vibrant, with a pillowy mousse, racy acids and a charming core of fruit. This has turned out very nicely indeed.

Crème de cassis and marzipan notes are ripe and rich in this plush Champagne, enlivened by juicy acidity as well as zesty grated ginger, plum skin and tangy fleur de sel accents. Round and balanced, an accessible crowd-pleaser. Disgorged April 2019. Drink now through 2030.

Varietal: Champagne Blend

Whilst Champagne sparkling wines are most commonly made with a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varietals, there are actually seven fine grape varietals allowed by French wine law for inclusion in the wines of this region. These include Arbanne, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and and Petit Meslier alongside the others, although these four are being used less and less in the modern age. Champagnes are normally blended wines, although the popularity of single variety 'blanc de blanc' Champagnes made solely with Chardonnay grapes, and 'blanc de noir' wines made only with Pinot Noir varietal grapes are becoming more and more popular. The blending process found in most Champagnes aims to take the finest points of each grape varietal and bring them together to produce spectacular, strong yet balanced results in the bottle.

Region: Champagne

There are very few wine regions in the world quite as famous as Champagne, and the sparkling white wines which are produced there are drank and enjoyed all over the globe as a result of their excellent quality, distinctive features and their association with grandeur and celebration. Wineries have been operating in the cool, damp north-easterly region of Champagne for hundreds of years, and over time have mastered the art of making the most of the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Petit Meunier grape varietals which grow there across the rolling hillsides and kept in the region's unique 'Champagne caves'. Most commonly, these three varietals are blended together to produce the sparkling white wine, but the popularity of single variety Champagne wines are on the increase.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
