The producer

Champagne house Thienot was established in Reims, in 1985, by Alain Thienot. Today the house is run by Alain’s sons, Stanislas and daughter Garance. The majority of fruit is sourced from grand cru vineyards and handled meticulously to produce the linear and lively style – with depth and complexity – for which the house is famous. Today Thienot also owns other champagne houses Canard Duchene and Joseph Perrier.

The wine

Cuvee Stanislas is made from 100% Chardonnay of which 90% are sourced from grand cru vineyards. The style is bone dry with only 4 g/l residual sugar and allowed to age for 12 years in Thienot’s underground chalk cellars, during which times it gains in complexity and textural richness. The aromatics are redolent of nutty, buttered pastries with baked apple and candied lemon, while the palate has great balance of concentration and verve.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
