93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Disgorged in May 2020, the new release of Hébrart's NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru wafts from the glass with inviting aromas of Anjou pear, white peach, linden and brioche. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and enveloping, it's bright and precise, with racy acids, a pinpoint mousse and a long, chalky finish. It's a touch drier than previous renditions (which were typically dosed as brut), and that really foregrounds the pristine quality of the fruit.

A creamy, harmonious version, with a lovely skein of fragrant spice unwinding through flavors of apple, chopped hazelnut and poached peach. Hints of honey and lemon curd linger on the rich, mouthwatering finish. Disgorged October 2014. Drink through 2020. 60 cases imported.

Mostly from the grands crus of Oiry and Chouilly in the Côte des Blancs, this is a bright chardonnay, simple and precise. While there’s some creaminess from malolactic fermentation, this is fresh and brisk. A great way to greet friends.
