The Oddbins Take

***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***


This Champagne could not be more popular if it was a genius on a University Challenge team in need of a point-boost to see them through the final furlong. Our staff love it, you love it, we love it… oh, wait, have we said that? Mellow, rounded, sumptuous, biscuity, balanced, lemony and complex style of Champagne, this one just doesn’t have any down sides, and that includes the price. It exemplifies the reason Oddbins champions small Champagne houses and, basically, makes us smile.

The H Blin champagne house was founded in 1947 when Henri Blin persuaded 28 of his grower friends around the village of Vincelles to join him in to build a co-operative winery and business. With little capital to invest, they paid for new equipment with bottle of their champagne. Today H Blin is co-owned by 100 family growers who have 110 hectares of vineyard between them. All vines are treated with minimal recourse to herbicides and pesticides.
