There are only 150 bottles of this great Champagne for the entire USA. I am so glad that we were lucky enough to get them! This is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Meunier from the tiny 11 acre Thibault estate in Passy-Grigny and Verneuil. This has the texture, richness and power that fans of Blanc de Noirs love, but is also very fresh and balanced. It has tart red cherry flavors as well as subtle brioche toast and quite impressive concentration on the finish. This will make a great pairing for a sashimi night that has lots of salmon and tuna, or for the aperitif with any smoked fish.

This wine is to die for! Very rarely do I taste a blanc de noirs where the red fruits shine through as purely as they do in this Thibault expression. There's just a lovely little tinge of berry that comes through on the finish, riding the fine bubbles and picture-perfect acidity all the way to the back of the palate. This was a great find by Gary, our buyer. I can't wait to start drinking this on the regular!

The richness of this Blanc de Noirs is readily apparent and a broader, deeper, richer wine than Thibault’s Brut yet is still has the snappy acidity. The nose is definitely more Pinot Noir driven, more red fruit character comes through on the nose and in a more relaxed and drifting way in comparison to its strident brother. On the palate the wine is rich, supple and has more spice and fruit, I love the way the mousse rests on your tongue, it’s luxuriant while still being balanced. This is a wonderful Champagne, for me I’d consider this more of a cocktail, just sitting around and drinking in its supple complexity.
Drink from 2017 to 2020

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
