Their Story: Jean-Paul Hebrart took over the operations of Marc Hebrart Champagne in the Vallee de la Marne from his father Marc in 1997. This estate is not exactly new: Jean-Paul's father has been producing Champagne under the Marc Hebrart name since 1964.
Jean-Paul Hebrart is married to Isabelle Diebolt of Diebolt-Vallois in Cramant. While they live in Mareuil, they each work at their respective family properties, with little to no overlap. "We function completely separately, each with our own estates," says Isabelle. Peter Liem writes of Champagne Hebrart on Champagneguide.net:
"Hebrart's wines have a broad appeal: if you like to think about your wines, they're intellectually engaging enough to satisfy you; on the other hand, if you're just looking to drink, they're simply delicious. The wines are full and generous without being weighty, complex and soil-driven without being demanding. Overall, the entire range is of consistently high quality, and represents excellent value for the money."
Marc Hebrart Champagnes are served at Daniel in NYC.
