CHAMPAGNE THIÉNOT

Champagnes and Châteaux have been the UK Agents for Champagne Thiénot for nearly 30 years.

The Dream of his own Champagne House

With almost 20 years experience as a wine broker in Champagne, Alain Thiénot had acquired a knowledge of the vineyards, having scoured the hillsides in the constant quest for wines that revealed the finest expressions of each Cru vineyard. It was from this experience that Alain Thiénot sowed the seeds of a dream, to establish his own Champagne House.

“Chasing the Dream”

By 1985, Alain Thiénot launched his eponymous Champagne House. Using his well-established contacts with growers to the best of his ability, he was able to guarantee an extraordinary supply of grapes. He favours quality over quantity, creativity over traditionalism. By 1989, Champagnes and Châteaux was busy introducing Champagne Thiénot to the UK

    “A delicately scented, vinous and fresh Champagne with notes of green apple, minerality, floral and citrus characters. The texture is simple, but classy, with elegant and persistent small bubbles with a refreshing, long finish – very good value indeed”

  • “Wonderful trip to Thiénot, great to see what they get up to, and how they do it. No doubt that there are some really useful bits of information that I learnt out there which I will pass on to the sommeliers & staff at this end. They are such a warm and friendly family it feels an honour to be one of their UK partners”

  • “Since I have been visiting the Thienot Champagne house 10 years ago I have always been faithful to the brand, the consistency of quality and the relatively low profile image, focusing on crafting quality wines rather than splashing on heavy marketing made it a sure winner for discerning Sommelier’s and high end restaurants. The Cuvee Alain Thienot 2002 especially is a favourite of mine, such richness and purity put it on par with far more well-known brands but the value for money is rather incredible once you taste it.”

    Jean-Louis Naveilhan
    Ember's Head Sommelier
  • Champagne Thiénot has always been a firm favourite of mine, they are a dream to drink, serve and pair so beautifully with dishes. The Thiénot name is a sign of the quality we strive for every day. A good Champagne can transform a good meal into a memorable one with just one glass.

    Allan Pickett
    Head Chef
  • “We have worked with Champagnes & Châteaux for more than 10 years and have always found them to be an excellent shipper – top agencies, knowledgeable and enthusiastic sales personnel, first class ordering and delivery through LCB and a friendly and efficient office team. We have bought Champagne Thiénot for all of that time and for the last 5 years have had great success with Canard-Duchêne “Cuvée Léonie” as our “house” Champagne. I would certainly recommend Champagnes & Châteaux and look forward to continuing to develop our business together over the coming years..”
