Marc Hebrart Blanc De Noirs Noces De Craies Extra Brut 2012

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
It means, lyrically, "wedding of chalk," and is the fruit of his passion for Pinot Noir. 44-year vines of massale selection, it hails from five parcels (Cheuzelle, Longchamp, Pruche, Chauffour, Pierre Robert) and is also a coeur de cuvée. It will be available in October 2016, and there won't be much of it. I tasted it blind, and noted-this wine is strong, with a back-palate zing of chalk and huge front-palate richness; it's almost obdurately long (it was then revealed) and AH, that explains it, it's all Aÿ. It shows a deep sorghum maltiness and profoundly earthy mineral, almost chocolatey. The final dosage is pending but will be Extra Brut; this will not be made every year, and the next one won't be until vintage-2015. Don't y'all buy it out; I need me a few bottles. -Terry Theise
