2007 Thiénot - Cuvée Alain Thiénot Brut (92 pts) @champagnethienot ℹ️ This wine is a blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir. The grapes come partially from their vineyards. The wine was aged on its lees for ten years and was disgorged in 2018. 👁 Medium gold color. 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of baked apple, quince paste, Mirabelle plum, dried apricot, orange zest, baked bread, cheese rind, custard, and caramel. 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, fine bubbles (not overly pervasive), medium alcohol (12.5%), and medium+ body. The wine has a powdery texture on the palate. A medium+ length finish of baked apple, crème caramel (flan), and orange zest. 🔔 The 2007 Cuvée Alain Thiénot is a fully mature Champagne that is ready to drink now. This wine shows how a fruit-driven Champagne ages with so much time on the lees developing baked and caramel apple notes with rich custardy flavors. The Cuvées of Champagne Thiénot all have a unique personality. It was fun to try them side by side. In the grand scheme of things, this represents a substantial value in Vintage Champagne. 💰~$105 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #thienot #champagnelife #brut #champagnelover #champagnethienot #vintagechampagne #cuvee
