Thierry Thibault is one of our smallest Direct Imports ("Direct Import" is code for "Unbeatable Price") and exemplifies the modern rise of the family run Champagne grower-producers. Thierry is the fourth generation of the Thibault family working the land and their pedigree is beyond reproach. Thierry's father Daniel was the chef-de-cave (head winemaker) for legendary Champagne houses Charles Heidsieck and Piper Heidsieck for over 20 years. Thierry inherited the vineyards 15 years ago and decide to produce his own champagne. He released his first bottling in 2009. When you grow your own grapes you have a more intimate relationship with the terroir and it shows in the bottle. The Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne NV is everything you want in a champagne and as you can read from the other reviews it's a staff favorite. A traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, and aged sur-lie for three years like a vintage champagne, the fruit, acidity, and autolytic character are in a harmonious balance. For under $30, you get a true expression of what makes champagne the very best of sparkling wines.

Thierry Thibault knows a thing or two about making champagne. His father was the head cellar master for Charles Heidsieck for many years before leaving him the family vines with which he makes this namesake cuvée. It has everything you look for in a great nonvintage brut-- freshness, richness & toastiness, great citrus and tropical fruit intermingling with chalky minerals, and a long crisp finish that keeps you coming back for more. This is really one of the best deals in bubbles you are likely to come across.

A blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier, aged for 3 years on the lees and 1 year on the cork, the Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne is a racy and refreshing sparkler at a fantastic price. With zesty notes of gala apple, honeycomb, green herbs, the chalky/pithy finish will make your mouth water. A perfect aperitif to a lovely dinner.

Wow!! If you are a fan of Chardonnay, Meunier, Pinot Noir champagnes, look no further because this is one. Thierry's expression of classic flavors that truly imbibes a well rounded and affordable bottle that is driven by peach mousse, a touch of nectarine, yellow plum and a tad of passion fruit that mirrors the mouthfeel along with the nose. This is an attractive bottle of bubbles and a stunning overall crowd pleaser. Enjoy with some white fish sashimi or caviar.

Thibault Brut goes for balance consisting of a third each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier. The nose opens rather floral with honeysuckle and potpourri followed by bright green apple and a little spice. The palate is racy with big citrus acidity, more crisp apple, and huge chunks of chalky minerality. This is a fresh and bold Champagne that can perk up any party.

A refreshing nose of lighter yellow fruits and green apple, offset by pastry dough scents. On the palate, clean and crisp, with solid citrus notes and spices. Stone fruits and sour apple fruit and French bread dough goodness on the palate . Finishes soft and rich, with creamy notes, clean minerals and plush yellow fruits. Super solid! Tasted this latest release with the staff a few days ago and everyone loved it!

The Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne is delicate and zippy with freshly zested lime flavors floating over a core of red and green apple. As the wine expands over the palate, really pretty notes of lemon cream, fresh baked French bread, and crushed chalk flit across the tongue while a subtly floral tone hums through the pleasantly soft, creamy finish. At this price, the Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne is a no-brainer.

This is a stellar addition to our sub-$30 Champagne collection. A classic blend of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier from estate-grown fruit, Thierry Thibault‘s Brut ticks all the right boxes for Champagne: lees aging, toastiness on the nose (and through the creamy palate), fine bead, and a crisp yet long finish. That brioche note is typically a quality reserved for much older—read: more expensive—Champagne, since it’s due to time spent on the lees. But this is already keenly developed here, giving you that coveted breadiness without having to cellar for decades or spend a lot. The complexity, especially at this price, is impressive.

What a pretty, delicate bottle of champagne! A blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier, the Thierry Thibault Brut has a perfume of fresh sliced Honeycrisp apple, orange blossom, and delicate brioche. The very fine bead and velvety texture perfectly complement the fresh orchard fruit and citrus flavors. There's a pleasant, crisp line of acidity here, but nothing overly assertive. Pick up a bottle soon: this is an elegant bottle of champagne at an incredible price, so our supply is sure to go quick!

Fresh and crisp with a wonderful nose, dry and fairly complex, with medium weight and serious crowd pleasing credentials, there is a lot to like about this Champagne. The price certainly seals the deal!

Thierry Thibault expanded our allocation of this excellent Champagne this year... Maybe we will have it in stock for a few days after the email this time! Thierry is the son of one of the giants of Champagne, the late great Daniel Thibault who was chef de cave for both Charles and Piper Heidsieck and pioneered the concept of transparency in non-vintage Champagne with his mis-en-cave bottlings. The estate spans two villages in heart of the western valley of the marne- Verneuil and Passy-Grigny. This Champagne is composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier and is aged for three years on the lees. This is a very bright, fresh style with vibrant acidity, but also with wonderful Chablis-like clean earth and complexity. It has a perfect, tight bead and a creamy texture, as well as a very dry and long finish. I was shocked at the price — this is the kind of value that will not last on our shelves!

Our Champagne buyer has picked up another fantastic grower-producer Champagne that drinks well above its price. Thierry Thibault's Brut is beautifully crisp with flavors of white peach, kiwi and granny smith apple with a solid acid backbone and subtle toastiness. This is definitely a bottle of bubbles I'll be stocking in my fridge for the holidays!

I get fresh brioche, lemon and strawberry flavors coupled with minerality, nice tiny bubles and a long finish. Absolutely delightful. At this price who could resist NOT getting at least a case? Cheers!

The Pinot Meunier in the blend really stands out here imbuing the wine with rich flavors of tart red berries which are then followed by crisp, green apple. This is clean and toasty but with a full, mouth filling mousse that amplifies the rich fruit before it crashes head on into the chalky, tongue tugging finish. An awesome value in high quality Champagne.

This is classic Champagne, the nose is tight, clean focused with an apply tartness softened with a bit of brioche while remaining super clean it's a delight. On the palate the wine is very dry, really tart and shows levels of complexity you generally don’t find in Champagne in this price range. It’s really long, focused and that acidity holds your interest as the complex apple and brioche emerges and gently softens. The finish is remarkably long, direct and boldly lets you know there is no hint of sweetness while spotlighting the complex apple character. Line up your Oysters, this is the wine for them it's a steal!

With a fun, easy flavor profile combined with a classic, sophisticated structure and finesse, the Brut from Thierry Thibault represents great value for excellent wine. The price-point belays the massive mouthfeel of the clearly well made juice. One of our in-house standard setters, this is a do-it-all bottle of bubbles that doesn't lean too far in anyone direction stylistically, but shows a depth and richness that most middle-of-the-road Champagne lacks.

I've never known Champagne buyer Gary Westby to bring in a direct import wine that wasn't absolutely phenomenal and this one is no exception. The quality here for $30 is somewhat unbelievable. Formerly selling to Charles Heidsieck, Thierry decided to keep the fruit for themselves and make some pretty killer Champagne with it. Made with 30% reserve wine, there is a lovely toastiness here, balanced out by fresh acidity from the 33% Chardonnay. Fans of our direct import Champagnes such as Launois, Aspasie, and Baron Fuente should not miss this one.

This is one well rounded champagne. It's such a crowd-pleaser because it has as little bit of everything -- freshness, richness, fruit and body. Four years on lees, and about 30% reserve wine means this wine has structure, texture and persistence. Ripe apple and toasty brioche aromas with great freshness and nice fleshy texture--this champagne is a slam dunk!

Crisp, clean, and refreshing from the first sip, the Thibault Brut came as a shocker when Gary poured me a glass and said "What do you think?" Simply put: I thought it was fantastic! As we're always on the hunt for new grower/producer labels at K&L, the Thibault is another weapon in our sub-$30 Champagne arsenal, alongside wines like Aspasie and Baron Fuente. In comparison, the Thibault is more delicate and light on its feet with nuanced flavors of brioche and citrus.
