H.Blin & Co was established in 1947 by respected winemaker, Henri Blin. Today it is a co-operative of more than 100 grape growers situated in the area of the small village of Vincelles in the Marne Valley; a subregion of the ‘origin protected’ Champagne province. Pinot Meunier is the dominant grape in Vallée de la Marne, where an abundance of southern facing slopes produce the ripest wines with full aroma. Blended with Pinot Meunier for structure and Chardonnay for a certain finesse, H.Blin is both a well articulated and well presented Champagne, the ideal celebratory bubbly for those Champagne moments.
