Marc Hebrart Special Club Brut Millèsime, Marc Hébrart 2012
The 2012 Brut Spécial Club Millésimé 1er Cru is a powerful, authoritative wine. Lemon peel, white flowers and orchard fruit are some of the many nuances that blossom in a rich, resonant Champagne loaded with class and personality. Creamy and ample, with terrific depth and plenty of volume, the 2012 will drink well for a number of years. The 2012 finishes just a touch dry, but there is a good deal of substance as well. Disgorged: April 2017. Dosage is 6.5 grams per liter. Drink between 2017-2024

This is still quite young as there is no trace of maturity to the super-fresh, yeasty, citrusy and green apple-suffused nose. There is excellent intensity to the delicious and reasonably complex flavors where the supporting and very firm mousse possesses a fine bead on the clean, dry and somewhat linear and lean finish. This is not particularly complex at present but this is clearly not at its peak and I would suggest buying this only if you intend to allow it at least another 3 to 7 years of bottle age. (Drink starting 2024)
