Initial notes of white florals and hazelnut present themselves, but there's more, much more... The palate is sleek, refined and almost weightless with a soft mousse and gentle pulse of acidity. Powerful energy coming from the mature vines and concentrated fruit. Flavours of citron confit, bitter grapefruit and salty oyster shell persist. The texture is the hallmark for this wine, leaving a fineprint on your tongue that is unmistakable. True craftsmanship at work.
"Plots of land in our Domain for which I have a strong attachment, which represent the spirit and the heart of Mareuil-sur-Ay's terroir" - John-Paul Hebrart
Jean-Paul Hebrart has blended together his favourite 'old vine' parcels all located in the premier cru of Mareuil-sur-Ay, where the Hebrart estate is located.

The vines are all about fifty years old and it is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, and a blend of three vintages; 2014, 2013 & 2012. It is the essence of Mareuil. The prestigious 'La Revue du Vin de France' has bestowed 'Mes Favorites' the coveted 'Coup de Coeur' award.
