Description

“Champagne Thiénot was founded in 1985 and based in Taissy, Reims.
Alain Thiénot showed real nerve starting up a Champagne House in modern times, going up against houses with 3 centuries of history. With almost 20 years experience as a wine broker in Champagne, he had acquired an in-depth knowledge of the vineyards, having scoured the hillsides in the constant quest for wines (that revealed) the finest expressions of each Cru vineyard. He had originally been invited by the major Champagne Houses to seek out only the rare and exceptional from growers, and it was from this experience that Alain Thiénot sowed the seeds of a dream, to establish his own 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. A precision-managed adventure and a challenge that paid off, Champagne Thiénot has found its place among the greatest Champagne Houses, favouring quality over quantity, creativity over traditionalism.
And it is this long road to success that has formed the bedrock of the Champagne House, notably its family values and independence.”
