About the Winery:

Jean-Paul Hébrart took over Marc Hébrart from his father in 1997. His father had been producing estate bottled wines since 1964 and joined the Club Trésors in 1985 Jean-Paul has slowly developed the estate in the last 20 years to one of the very finest grower estates in the Marne. The basis for these outstanding wines are the privileged holdings in Aÿ, including the newly purchased plots in Le Léon, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, and Dizy in the Grande Vallée as well as Avize, Oiry and Chouilly in the Côte and recently acquired vineyards in Louvois in the Montagne. Jean-Paul harvests, presses and vinifies each of his over 85 plots separately, blending sites to make harmonious wines which reflect the personality of the grower as well as the terroir. A majority of the wines are fermented in steel, though old used barrels have become a part of his program for Rive Gauche-Rive Droite and his new wine, Clos de Léon, both of which are fermented and aged in neutral barrique.

The Hébrart wines are truly of both place and person, the kind, welcoming and generous qualities that Jean-Paul Hébrart exudes can be seen in all of his Champagnes. And while he could easily rest on his laurels at this point, JP instead continues to expand his range, experimenting with lower dosage levels in his benchmark cuvées, and producing stunning Coteaux Champenoise from recently acquired, historic vineyards.

Ratings & Reviews:

95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2017 Champagne Special Club Brut is 100% Chardonnay from the Grand Crus of Oiry, Chouilly, and Avize, and the 1er crus of Dizy. The nose is pretty and forward with bread dough, quince, and peach, and it has fresh and generous fruit on the palate that fills throughout the finish, with an energetic mousse, as well as notes of lime candy, white flowers, and fresh salinity. It has a fair bit of length and a bit of white pepper spice. drink 2024-2044. (Drink between 2024-2044)" (Nov 2022)

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2017 Brut Spécial Club 1er Cru is a very classy, understated Champagne. Soft, silky contours, lifted aromatics and an exceptionally fine mousse are some of the signatures. Tasted from magnum, the 2017 is an absolute delight. It is one of the most elegant wines I have tasted from Marc Hébrart. The 2017 is just a bit light, but its balance is beyond reproach. It has enough freshness to drink well for at least a number of years. Tasted from magnum. Disgorged: January 18, 2022. (Drink between 2022-2029)" - Antonio Galloni (May 2022)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Disgorged in April 2021, Hébrart's 2017 Brut Premier Cru Special Club offers up aromas of pear, citrus oil, white peach and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's soft, seamless and open-knit, with a giving profile and an attractively pillowy mousse. This is a front-loaded Champagne in 2017, and I suspect it will be at its best young." - William Kelley (Jan 2022)
