Vineyard & Vinification Note
Thiénot Vintage is the unique interpretation of a prestigious year, and the fruit of a long, passionate crafting. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it embodies the finest expression of the character of the vintage, offering great aromatic complexity and unfailingly impressive freshness.
Note on 2009 vintage: The harsh winter is marked by heavy frosts and frequent snowfall. The bud burst takes place around April 15, while the first flowers are reported late May. Thunderstorms, rains, cool temperatures mark this spring 2009. Summer takes place in a contrasting time. The rainy and stormy weather in June and July allow the appearance of mildew. Fortunately, the month of August is very sunny, warm and dry, allowing a favourable and rapid evolution of the ripening of the grapes. The harvest starts between 8 and 21 September depending on the sectors. The quality of the grapes is exceptional, the chardonnays are fruity and the black pinots have an exotic and mineral character
10 years ageing in the cellars at Rue des Moissons
A light yellow appearance. The nose offers beautiful expressive notes of juicy ripe fruit (yellow peach, exotic fruits, mango, pineapple). On the palate, the balance is perfect between tension and roundness. Vegan.
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
The Champagne and Sparkling Wine award – GOLD MEDAL
A balanced wine that is ready to drink, this is crisply textured, with a low dosage that gives a really fresh character to what is a young Champagne. Citrus flavors are shot with minerality and a tangy, tight edge. Drink from 2021. 92 Points, Roger Voss, December 2019
Cuvée Thiénot Vintage can be enjoyed as a foodie aperitif with foie gras canapés and pairs beautifully with white meat
