Champagne Blanc Comme Neige by Pascal Henin is the result of 100% Chardonnay from grapes from the vineyards of the family Domaine in Chouilly, Grand Cru of the Vallée de la Marne.
As winter represents the end of a time, so this cuvée marks the generational passage from father to son, the transmission of know-how and values, of a wealth of knowledge and skills learned over the years from Pascal. And while the sun warms the earth, the seeds of renewal are already sprouting under the snow: Romain with his innovative ideas and with the desire to experiment is ready to succeed his father Pascal, who is more tied instead to a concept of Champagne with a classic style and traditional. The Champagne Blanc Comme Neige is therefore the latest cuvée that sees the collaboration between the two.
Harvest 2018 and dosage (3 g/l) performed with the must of the 2022 harvest made by Romain, it is the reflection of the great classic Champagne. Precise and structured, it is a Blanc de Blancs that looks to the future.
The label was created by the French artist Arthur Millot, known as BUR.
Romain and Pascal Henin, represent the story of Champagne of Aÿ that is handed down from generation to generation. Pascal Henin, historical Récoltant-Manipulant and Vignerons-Indépendants, cultivates his vineyards in the grands terroirs of the Vallée de la Marne: Aÿ and Chouilly, Grands Crus, and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and Dizy, Premiers Crus. The work in the vineyard is precise and rigorous, the cultivation methods follow the rules of tradition and in recent years he has engaged in a program that promotes environmentally friendly practices which has allowed him to obtain the HVE environmental certification in 2019. Pascal follows the entire winemaking process, managed with traditional methods combined with new techniques; the practice involves natural decantation, alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts, natural malolactic fermentation and no filtration or clarification. Pascal's son, Romain has leapt onto the Champenois scene a few years ago, also bringing his father's Champagnes to the fore, with which, despite different visions in terms of vineyard management and winemaking, he seems to have found common ground. Romain Henin, is a new generation winemaker who follows the wave of artisanal Champagnes and non-interventionist philosophy. In the vineyard he uses biological and biodynamic practices without the use of chemicals, additives and added sulphites. Same approach also in the cellar where fermentation is triggered naturally with the use of indigenous yeasts. The partnership between Pascal and Romain are structured and precise Champagnes, identity Champagnes that reflect the character of the Aÿ terroir. To date, they can be considered "transitional" Champagnes, a compromise between a mature vision of Pascal, rooted in tradition and a more classic style, and the more innovative and experimental one of Romain. In any case, the "handover" from father to son has begun, we just have to wait for the next releases to understand how Romain will reinterpret the Henin Champagnes.
