2005 Thienot La Vigne Aux Gamins 75CL
Wine Rating: N/A points
Drink by: N/A
"Made entirely from Chardonnay grapes sourced from old vines planted in a 100% Grand Cru vineyard in Avize, la Vigne aux Gamins is a highly distinctive wine, effusing love, and flavours. The Champagne is very clear, almost translucent in appearance, with a delicate bead.
The bouquet evolves with great finesse, with a hint of mineral character, fruit and white flower aromas and the impressive length that is synonymous with great terroir. Stripped of any superfluous frills, La Vigne aux Gamins displays exceptional purity."
"When Alain Thienot discovered this stunning 100 Grand Cru Chardonnay vineyard, located in Avize on a hillside in the Côte des Blancs his houghts turned to his children, Stanislas and Garance, and he dedicated this plot to them both. Since that day, the Thienot family has devoted special attention to ending the vines in Avize and every year meticulous care is invested in maturing the few thousands of bottles lovingly produced.
Planted more than sixty years ago, the Avize plot benefits from outstanding advantages Its east facing aspect warms the vine in the early morning, while the relatively shallow soil is ideal for enhancing the Chardonnay’s aromatic expression.
The pure chalk subsoil is responsible for the wine’s finesse, while its propensity to millerandage which forms smaller, aerated grapes, ensures excellent levels of ripeness."
