Classique Range

Thiénot Brut Vintage, 2009

“An attractive sense of freshness and purity with white peaches and lemons and youthful, primary characters and dried flowers. The palate has a very succulent and fleshy feel with white peaches, pears and apples, delivered in such expressive, delicious mode. Very long, fruit-drenched finish. Drink or hold.”  93 Points, Sept 2019

Thiénot Brut Vintage, 2008

“Attractive hazelnut aromas with cinnamon and lemon peel. Some sous-bois and bright red flowers, too. The palate is taut, as befits the vintage, and the chardonnay really sings here with long, lemon and grapefruit flavors. Still very youthful, very fresh and very long. Drink or hold.” 94 Points, Sept 2018

Thiénot Brut NV

“Plenty of bright, ripe-fruit aromas here – rich peaches, pears and grilled almonds. The palate has a very composed feel and a deeper, savory attitude with light honey and grilled nuts. A lot of character for the first cuvée. 2013 base with 45 per cent reserve wine. Drink now.” 91 Points – September 2018

Thiénot Brut Rosé NV

“Focused on fresh fruit, this blended rosé has dried, crushed roses on the nose with a chalky edge. The palate is built on acidity, showing neat, fresh pink grapefruit flavor. Super fresh. Drink now.” 92 Points, September 2018

Thiénot Blanc de Blancs NV

“The richness, freshness and toasty character here is impressive, really offering so much. The palate has very precise lemons and white peaches and a smooth, fleshy and fresh, cashew-nut edge at the finish. Drink now.” 92 Points, September 2019
