Champagnes and Châteaux have been the UK Agents for Champagne Thiénot since 1989.
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
Today, Champagne Thiénot is in the capable hands of Stanislas and Garance, the company’s leaders and ambassadors. Alain Thiénot, ever present at their side, continues to share his knowledge and secrets.
