AY, CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE
The majority of Marc Hébrart's vines are located in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, just outside the commune Épernay. While he used to sell the majority of his grapes to the major houses in Champagne, Marc now produces his own wine under his own name. Grower's Champagne represents tremendous value, especially in comparison to houses such as Krug or Bollinger; the price of Grower's Champagne does not go towards as much branding or marketing. Hébrart's range focuses on sustainable viticulture without sacrificing quality. The wines display extraordinary finesse and richness alongside great value for money, which is always a nice bonus!
