Mareuil-Sur-Aÿ

What to expect


- High quality grower-producer

- Uses some of the best premier cru and grand cru plots in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ

- Pair with Sea bass with, mussels & pippies spread with herb butter and finished with the sea succulent - samphire and some roast potatoes.

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

Technical Notes

“Hébrart’s wines have a broad appeal: if you like to think about your wines, they’re intellectually engaging enough to satisfy you; on the other hand, if you’re just looking to drink, they’re simply delicious. The wines are full and generous without being weighty, complex and soil-driven without being demanding. Overall, the entire range is of consistently high quality, and represents excellent value for the money.” - Peter Liem  Marc Hébrart is a one of the shining lights in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, one of the most renowned villages in the Marne Valley. Home to Billecart-Salmon and the famous ‘Clos des Goisses’ vineyard, many believe Mareuil should be classified as Grand Cru. Hébrart produce Pinot Noir-dominated Champagnes. Chardonnay makes up a small amount of the house blend, but no Pinot Meunier is used. Hébrart formerly provided grapes to bigger houses such as Bollinger before choosing to bottle its production under its own name. 

Technical Notes


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.  'Faubourg d'Enfer', 'Pruches', 'Haut-Varille', 'Croix Blanche', 'Maladrie', 'Beauregard', 'Ramonette', 'Buisson St. Loup', 'Cotes', 'Sente des demoiselles' 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.
