2008 Thiénot Cuvée Garance
“Garance” is the name of a plant from the rubiaceae family, whose roots were used in the past to produce a red dye, which is a bright, clear shade of red. So it is no surprise that Alain Thiénot offers his daughter a blend of the finest Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims; an astonishing wine revealing unique character of power and finesse. This original wine reveals an attractive bead, accompanied by an intense, complex bouquet, indicating great ageing potential. This is a powerful and elegant Champagne, typical of Pinot Noir.
