Tasting Notes

This is a blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier from estate grown fruit in the Western Valley of the Marne. It is a dry style, with lots of great nutty toast from three years of sur-lee ageing and good length. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

    Yay! Our Champagne buyer has picked up another fantastic grower-producer Champagne that drinks well above its price. Thierry Thibault's Brut is beautifully crisp with flavors of white peach, kiwi and granny smith apple with a solid acid backbone and subtle toastiness. This is definitely a bottle of bubbles I'll be stocking in my fridge for the summertime!

    Thierry Thibault only had 420 bottles of his brut Champagne for the US market from his tiny 11 acre estate. I feel very lucky that we were able to get them. Thierry is the son of one of the giants of Champagne, the late great Daniel Thibault who was chef de cave for both Charles and Piper Heidsieck and pioneered the concept of transparency in non-vintage Champagne with his mis-en-cave bottlings. The estate spans two villages in heart of the western valley of the marne- Verneuil and Passy-Grigny. This Champagne is composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier and is aged for three years on the lees. This is a very bright, fresh style with vibrant acidity, but also with wonderful Chablis like clean earth and complexity. It has a perfect, tight bead and a creamy texture, as well as a very dry and long finish. I was shocked at the price- this is the kind of value that will not last on our shelves!

    Crisp, clean, and refreshing from the first sip, the Thibault Brut came as a shocker when Gary poured me a glass and said "What do you think?" Simply put: I thought it was fantastic! As we're always on the hunt for new grower/producer labels at K&L, the Thibault is another weapon in our sub-$30 Champagne arsenal, alongside wines like Aspasie and Baron Fuente. In comparison, the Thibault is more delicate and light on its feet with nuanced flavors of brioche and citrus.

    This is classic Champagne, the nose is tight, clean focused with an apply tartness softened with a bit of brioche while remaining super clean. On the palate the wine is very dry, really tart and shows levels of complexity you generally don’t find in Champagne in this price range. It’s really long, focused and that acidity holds your interest as the complex apple and brioche emerges and gently softens. The finish is remarkably long, direct and boldly lets you know there is no hint of sweetness while spotlighting the complex apple character. Line up your Oysters, this is the wine for them!
    Drink from 2017 to 2020
