H Blin Rose Brut Champagne (SIX BOTTLES)

Producer

Simon Blin heads up the family currently, a very dynamic individual who will take this already prestigious small house to even greater heights. The Blins have been awarded numerous medals and their NV Brut Rose is scored 92/100.

Vineyards

Located in Vincelles, in the Marne Valley opposite the town of Dormans, it covers an area of 130 hectares. Here the Pinot Meunier is king. It is renowned to produce structured wines, fine and fruity. H.Blin is an 8th generation family originally in charge of a collective of 23 growers. They are well recognized for making elegant, soft styles of Champagne from the Vallee de le Marne dominated by Pinot Meunier which explains the softness to their Champagnes. Vineyards are now turning over to completely sustainable methods and they hope to be awarded their certificate for this very soon. Pesticides and inorganic fertilizers are no longer used and vineyards are ploughed and planted with grass

Vinification

In a market dominated by anonymous Champagne labels and sous marques from large producers, here we have an artisanal style of Champagne from an award winning producer that offers genuine Champagne character and pleasure at an entry level price This NV Brut Rose is enhanced by the inclusion in the blend of reserve wines from the 2006 and 2008 vintages of which a little of the Pinot Noir element is oak aged.

Tasting Notes

Mineral at first, slightly austere, opening out in the mid palate with brioche notes and then finishing with bright raspberry notes. Buying from Dillies means you`re supporting an independent shop in Hexham,Northumberland. Delivery is normally 2/4days
