Jerome Blin's estate is located in Vincelles in the Marne. He continues the family tradition dating back to 1671. The 6 ha estate is made up 70% of Meunier, typical of the Valley of the Marne, and 15% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay. The Octave is made from 100% Chardonnay from the limestone terroir that is located mid-slope, 35+ year-old vines.

In 2015, after a year of manual labor and plowing by horse, Jerome decided to do a non-dosage bottling because the raw material was so good. He hand harvested the crop and fermented the grapes in a combination of stainless steel vats and oak barrels. The wine was then bottled in April of 2016 and laid to rest in his cellars for three years. Now, with an additional year of bottle age post-disgorgement, it's drinking beautifully. We like to describe it as a cross between the purity and ripe fruit of say a Cedric Bouchard and a little of that natural component found in Laval. This is a stunning wine that we highly recommend.
