Win a case of H. Blin grower champagne
In what has become a bit of a tradition on matchingfoodandwine.com we have a case of champagne as our prize this month as our way of celebrating Valentine's Day. And we’re particularly pleased to have the small family owned champagne house of H. Blin as our sponsor this year
The founder Henri Blin was descended from a long line of family growers from Vincelles, a charming village located on the champagne route in the Marne valley. Today Champagne H.Blin owns 123 hectares of vineyards which are mainly planted with Pinot Meunier and focusses on the unique characteristics of this variety to produce authentic, terroir-driven champagnes. Blin’s vineyards are now all managed using sustainable methods and several hectares are certified organic.
The case of six bottles will include 3 bottles each of their brut champagne (described by Oddbins, which stocks it, as a "mellow, rounded, sumptuous, biscuity, balanced, lemony and complex style of champagne" and the richer still Blanc de Noirs which, like a number of their champagnes, is made 100% from Pinot Meunier.
All you have to do to enter the competition is register on the site (and subscribe, if you like, to our free monthly newsletter)
Given the nature of the prize, you must be 18 or over to enter and we can’t dispatch prizes to those of you who live outside the UK, I’m afraid.
The closing date for the competition is 11.59pm GMT on Sunday March 4th 2018 which means you won’t of course get it in time for V Day if you win but hopefully February 14th is not the only day on which you'll feel moved to make a romantic gesture. And there’s nothing stopping you buying a bottle while you wait to find out if you’re the lucky winner. (For prices and stockist details see below*)
