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.
A magnificent blend crafted exclusively from Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, Alain Thiénot has dedicated this Champagne to his son Stanislas. A Vintage Champagne, it expresses all the complexity and generosity of Chardonnay with great elegance.
A blend of vintage Chardonnay – Blanc de Blancs
With its elegant, golden, clear appearance, this Blanc de Blancs offers creamy, light and mineral notes on the bouquet. On the palate, the depth and freshness of the Chardonnay is expressed in its long finish with fruity aromas. Cuvée Stanislas is the alliance of subtlety and elegance.
A cold winter and springtime frosts laid the foundations for this vintage of abundant yields (12,997 kg/ha). Uneventful flowering was followed by exceptionally hot and sunny weather, which lasted until August. A dank August left producers fearful but fortunately warm, bright conditions in September redressed the balance. Harvest commenced on September 9th, producing grapes high in sugar level but notably low on acidity. The general health of the grapes was sufficient, producing wines which excel over the preceding 2005 vintage, another warm and ample year. The year's greatest wines are supple and expressive and despite the richness they escape being overly heavy. Overt and welcoming upon launch, the best come with excellent capacity for ageing. Winey, and richly fruity characters, most Champagnes regrettably miss some tension and finesse. Wines of the vintage include Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, Krug Vintage and Dom Pérignon Rosé.
