For the second consecutive year, Champagne Thiénot will be the exclusive champagne featured during the pre-show of the 86th Oscars as well as at the prestigious Governors Ball, the Academy’s official post-Oscar ® celebration.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has again selected the little known house of Thienot Champagne because of its very high end quality and its extremely selective distribution. “We are thrilled that the Academy has chosen our family-owned House for the most prestigious event of the year. All the guests who enjoyed Thienot Champagne during the 85th show and ball last February had a tremendous experience, so the Academy decided to feature our Champagne again!” said François Peltereau-Villeneuve, President & CEO of Thiénot USA.
Thiénot Champagne comes from the city of Reims, located in the heart of the historic Champagne region. Most of the grapes come from its own vineyards, in the famous Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims.
The Winery: This contemporary Champagne house, led by its founders, the Thiénot family, combines finesse, fruit and freshness in a blend of three grape varieties selected from the finest vineyards in Champagne. The wine develops a spring-like bouquet, where floral and fruit aromas intertwine. The lively, delicate wine evolves on the palate towards a long finish exuding a succession of orchard notes.
