KMH-2

Champagne Brut Selection, Hebrart

65% Pinot Noir (and again 70-30 between ‘05-‘04) and 35% Chardonnay (again all ‘05), and this was more graceful and unified despite even more recent disgorgement—1/08, so go figure. It’s considerably chalkier than usual, high-toned lemon and mirabelle; wonderful length and shimmer; I don’t recall a better bottling of this lovely Champagne.

Tasting Notes

One of my perennial favorite wines in the entire offering, one my own cellar is full of, and one of the top values.  55% of the assemblage is 2011. (The rest is 24% ’10 and 21% ’09.) All its usual elements are in place & the finish is beautiful.  Old-vines PN from Mareuil, and Grand Cru CH from Oiry and Chouilly. 70/30. Deg 10/27/15 —Terry Theise
