K&L Notes

Precious few 2002s are available these days - grab one of these when you can! This classy vintage Champagne is composed of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Like all of the Thiénot vintage wines, this bottling is entirely estate grown from the family's nearly seventy acres of vines. The "Alain Thiénot" has so much aroma that I thought it would be a giant Champagne from smelling the walnut bread and dark cherry fruit that was jumping from the glass. On the palate this is a very balanced wine with great clarity of flavor and a light bead. The long aging of this Champagne has done so much for it - to think that the most famous names in Champagne are selling wine that is four or even six years younger shows Thiénot's commitment to quality in the bottle. It is extremely focused and long on the finish and a must-try for anyone who loves luxury cuvées. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

    This is a monster of a Champagne, in the best possible way. We opened it at a recent customer tasting, and it displayed a quicksilver quality, starting lean and opening up to honeyed complexity. Structured, this could age easily for another decade, but was a treat to drink now, with air and preferably a meal. It showcases the strength of the stellar 2002 vintage while staying true to Thienot's powerful house style.
