This Champagne comes from vineyards purchased from Krug in the 80's, and now the jewel in the crown of the Thienot estate. Released after the 2002 Salon, this is still young at 13. The last glass revealed profound nutty complexity... A great bottle.

Heady nose of butterscotch, brioche and pear galette. A high note of lemon zest gives some lift to this very decadent sparkler. Very full and round in the mouth. Burnt sugar, caramel and toast with enough vibrant acidity interlaced throughout to keep it lively. Medium plus finish with a subtle and unexpected note of gardenia and ginger. Drinking well now.

Great champagne! Dark golden color, hazlenut, pear and almond nose. Good mousse. Enough toast and acids.

60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir estate grown. Refreshing and balanced. Nutty. Clean and lifted finish.
