About the Wine
Simon Blin's family of winemaking stretches back to 1636. To say that he is unusually qualified to direct the co-op is an understatement. Using only exceptionally made with Pinot Meunier from the experts at this cooperative winemaking facility, this wine is both powerful and elegant. Golden in color with fine and persistent perlage, the bubbles are lively and expressive. In the glass, you will find aromas of green apple and honeysuckle on the nose, with abundant fruitiness and a bright acidity on the palate.
This is Pinot Meunier from the Marne Valley Village of Vincelles, where BLIN, a cooperative of 110 growers, specializes in the variety. They offer this 100% Meunier without dressing it up, allowing its rustic charms and beauty to show. And it's easy to fall in love with this wine, drawn in by the Springtime scent of flowers and strawberries, fresh and completely clean but for an extra layer of something a little sweaty and intriguing, a hint of darkness from the clay soil adding perspective to what is otherwise a bright and sunny Champagne. ~93W&S 2016 Year's Best Champagne
