History

It takes real nerve to set up your own Champagne House, when the very first Houses began their existence more than three centuries ago. Alain Thiénot demonstrated real nerve, as well as inspiration and aspiration in doing exactly that.
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.

By 1985, Alain Thiénot had developed his project and launched his eponymous Champagne House. Using his well-established contacts with growers to the best of his ability, he was able to guarantee an extraordinary supply of grappes.
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.

Winemaking

It only took a few years for Thiénot to be recognised as one of the great names in Champagne.
A forward thinking and contemporary Champagne House, its inherently family spirit and distinctive style award it a personality of its own. A Champagne favoured by trendsetters, these premium quality Champagnes are found in only selected establishments throughout the world. The classic Thiénot Champagne collection comprises three cuvées: Thiénot Brut, Thiénot Rosé and Thiénot Vintage, which are all cellar-aged for four to eight years to attain their finest expression.

Since the early days, Alain Thiénot has created an eponymous Champagne in his image, he has also crafted a vintage Champagne for each of his children: Cuvée Garance and Cuvée Stanislas. Expressing the most prestigious Champagne Grand Cru and the finest vintages, the wines in this collection are crafted from grapes sourced exclusively from Champagne Thiénot’s Premier and Grand Cru vineyards. They epitomise this family spirit and stay true to the House style, each emanating a distinct personality.
