We are so pleased to be sharing James Suckling’s latest scores for Champagne Thiénot.
Great scores for their 2008 vintage Cuvée Alain and Stanislas and Flagship La Vigne Aux Gamins.
2008 was a fantastic vintage in Champagne!
Full list of James suckling’s scores for Thiénot below:
“This is a very intense and powerful blanc de blancs with sliced cooked-apple, dried-lemon, pie-crust and stone aromas and flavors. So full and intense. Chewy texture. Rich and structured. A truly great blanc de blancs. Such intensity and power. Drink or hold.” 97 Points, March 2021
“Lots of strawberry and lemon aromas with some stone undertones, following through to a full body with a dense, layered palate with medium bubbles that give the wine form and tension. Very vinous and intense. Comes across dry and structured. Drinkable now, but better in a year or two.” 95 Points, March 2021
“This offers a very fresh and attractive nose with a white-floral edge and a savory, wet river-stone note. The palate has a super crisp, pink grapefruit feel with some chalky, fresh bready nuances and a very sleek and dry, elegant finish. Drink or hold.” 94 Points, James Suckling, September 2019
Thiénot La Vigne aux Gamins Blanc de Blancs, 2008 – Not yet available in UK
“Medium-bodied with aromas of dried lemon zest, white peach, toasted brioche, walnut and chamomile. It’s bright and tangy with very fine bubbles. Focused, fresh, complex and elegant – just what you want from a blanc de blancs. Structured and rich. Drink or hold.” 95 Points, April 2021
