50% Pinot noir – 50% Chardonnay
In homage to Henri Brochet-Hervieux, our HBH is produced solely in those years judged outstanding.
This blend is a symphony of our best Pinot Noir d’Ecueil and our best exposed Chardonnay plots, aged on their sides [“sur lattes“] for at least 10 years.
This allows a slow enrichment of the wine, giving it power, roundness, elegance and aromatic complexity. Light gold in colour, it reveals fresh aromas with notes of lightly candied fruits and honey. In the mouth, this HBH 1er Cru 2005 shows great finesse and a lightness rare in the line of HBH cuvées.

65% Pinot noir – 35% Chardonnay
A vintage cuvée is born from the quality of the grapes at harvest time and the determination of the grape juice’s analytical characteristics. Tastings of the base wines during the winter after vinification identify the potential of a vintage. After bottling, the blend matures for over three years in order to reproduce all the aromas of the two varietals combined.
Good effervescence with nice lively, fine bubbles. The nose is generous, infused with subtlety and delicacy over a beautifully complex background (dried fruit aromas, grilled and toasty notes, acacia fragrances with light honey accents). The mouthfeel is bold and nicely crisp, it delights with its pleasant freshness and with its generosity. The finish has notes of toasted bread and smoky, toasty aromas. The Millésime 2012 “Alain”, in homage to our father, is elegant, racy, and exquisitely fine.
