H.Blin NV Champagne 750ml
H.Blin & Co. Champagne is a lively and effervescent French Champagne, representing excellent value for money. H. Blin's vineyards are situated in and around the little village of Vincelles in the Marne Valley. Here Pinot Meunier reigns supreme, gifting a unique and surprising palate with its subtle freshness and fruitiness. Blended with Pinot Noir for structure and Chardonnay for a certain finesse, H.Blin is both a well-articulated and well-presented champagne. La Maison H. Blin is devoted to quality and thus takes particular care over the wine making process, applying modern methods while stoically maintaining time-honoured traditions.
The ideal celebratory bubbly for those "champagne moments" H.Blin & Co. Champagne also serves as a lovely aperitif, or accompanying dishes such as poultry, cold seafood and fruit based desserts.
In a blind tasting, internationally acclaimed sommeliers Markus del Monego and Andreas Larsson described H. Blin as"Young and pale with vivid bubbles. Aromatically it is slightly close knit with almond and green apple notes, elegant fruit, zesty freshness. On the palate creamy texture and mineral character...balanced with a longer than average finish."

Tasting Note: Lively golden. An abundance of light, fine and persistent bubbles. Scents of dried flowers and fragrances of honey essence and white fruits (apple, pear) and yellow fruits. Grows rounder as it develops, notes of exotic and white fruits.
