Founded in 1947, after the major houses ceased purchasing grapes from the growers of Vincelles in the post-war period of economic downturn, was the stimulus needed for Henri Blin, a winemaker born into a very ancient family of Vincelles, and 28 other winemakers to buy a press house of their own.
Champagne H.BLIN is a company of 110 grape-growers, eight generations of winemakers born into the home of Vincelles.The village of Vincelles is situated in the Marne Valley and covers an area of 130 hectares.
The vineyards are planted with 70% pinot meunier and 30% chardonnay and pinot noir (the distribution of plantations for the entire Champagne area is 30% chardonnay, 30% pinot meunier and 35% pinot noir). In Vincelles, replanting is rare. The configuration of the Vincelles vineyard is exceptional: facing south-southeast, it receives the first rays of the sun and is bathed in late summer in the sweet serenity of sunset. The sub-soil, mostly marno-limestone, is well known to give finesse and delicacy to grapes. That is why one calls the terroir of Vincelles “Little AY”. The wines of this area are considered structured, well built and refined.
