Winemaker's Notes:

La Cuvée Alain Thienot is an unprecedented achievement from an outstanding vintage, and is only crafted in the finest of years. A subtle blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this cuvee exemplifies a wine of great maturity. Aromas of buttered brioche on the nose, whilst aerating the wine reveals notes of citrus fruits and grapefruit. The wine is complex on the palate, combining finesse and maturity, and revealing impressive aromatic intensity. This is a wine of body and weight. La Grande Cuvee Alain Thienot is an exclusive choice with excellent ageing potential.

Enjoy with white buttered sole, monkfish or grilled sea bass.

My Notes:

About Thienot:

Champagne Thiénot symbolizes the very essence of Champange and Bordeaux, France with its exclusive, global and contemporary profile. For 25 years, Alain Thiénot has built the foundations for a new champagne house, with the greatest respect for a number of core values: quality, modernity and luxury, values which have enabled the vineyards to show their true potential.

The Thiénot approach is family-orientated, where modernity combines with a respect for tradition, creativity meets quality, and where passion unites with exacting standards.

Champagne is an art without compromise. The Thiénot approach combines individuality, flair and selectiveness to create a unique style: Finesse, elegance and subtlety. This approach has helped Champagne Thiénot gain international stature, uniting prestige and innovation.
