The 2015 Extra Brut Noces de Craie is fabulous. Rich, powerful and explosive, the 2015 exudes Pinot intensity, with layers of chalky, saline notes that run through a deep core of fruit. This is a decidedly virile style. The 2015 finishes with tremendous vinosity and all of the textural resonance that is typical of Champagnes from Aÿ. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: August, 2019. 

Disgorged in April 2019, Hébrart's 2015 Extra-Brut Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru Noces de Craie is lovely, bursting with aromas of peach, pear, clear honey, white flowers and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, it is fleshy and vibrant, with a pillowy mousse, racy acids and a charming core of fruit. This has turned out very nicely indeed. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Crème de cassis and marzipan notes are ripe and rich in this plush Champagne, enlivened by juicy acidity as well as zesty grated ginger, plum skin and tangy fleur de sel accents. Round and balanced, an accessible crowd-pleaser. Disgorged April 2019. Drink now through 2030. - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator

This is pure pinot noir from several parcels in Aÿ, all vinified in stainless steel. It’s vivid and assertive, showing the ripeness and power of the vintage, yet it also feels velvety in texture and elegantly refined, demonstrating all of the grandeur and sophistication of the Aÿ terroir. Its finish is long and densely fragrant, marked by a slight bitterness but managed well, and it promises to gain even more complexity and expression with further aging. Last tasted: 3/20  - Peter Liem, Champagne Guide

"This preview bottle was extraordinary, following on the heels of the masterly 2012. It’s 100% Aÿ PN, from Cheuzelles, Longchamp, Pierre Robert, Pruche and Chauffour. Another Coeur de Cuvée, massale selection, deg 9/2018. Our “marriage of chalk” is surprisingly lapidary and ready. More seductive than the “Favorites” and also fruitier. It has a huge adamant length you did not expect—all the power is in the back, it only seems to yield. Like a sweet-natured person who always seems to prevail, or a sideways strength you don’t feel being used. A wonderful, surprising work of genius." - Terry Theise, importer

Tthe Noces de Craie, a pure pinot noir champagne sourced from Hébrart’s finest parcels in Aÿ, including Cheuzette, Longschamps, Pruche, Chauffour and Pierre Robert. All of the vines used for this cuvée are over 40 years old, planted with a sélection massale, and the inaugural vintage was 2012.- Peter Liem, Champagne Guide
