    Winemaker's Notes:

    La Cuvée Alain Thienot is an unprecedented achievement from an outstanding vintage, and is only crafted in the finest of years. A subtle blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this cuvee exemplifies a wine of great maturity. Aromas of buttered brioche on the nose, whilst aerating the wine reveals notes of citrus fruits and grapefruit. The wine is complex on the palate, combining finesse and maturity, and revealing impressive aromatic intensity. This is a wine of body and weight. La Grande Cuvee Alain Thienot is an exclusive choice with excellent ageing potential.

    Enjoy with white buttered sole, monkfish or grilled sea bass.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Offers a fine balance between rich, smoky nut and coffee character and flavors of ripe pear, pineapple, lemon meringue and ground ginger, with well-meshed, firm acidity. A hint of coffee liqueur shows on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2020.

    Wine Spectator

    A wine that is showing a toasty, mature view of the 1999 vintage. There are flavors of soft almonds, a smooth texture and a final, soft richness. While this is unlikely to develop much further, it is an impressive, ripe, food-friendly wine.
