Leclaire Thiefaine are a Champagne House with a somewhat secretive image. Searching on the internet for this intriguing brand will prove to be a challenge, but don't let that blur your attraction to the wine they produce. Decadent and aged to perfection, the grapes for this House are sourced from only the finest locations – places which have, for a long time, proven their worth as hallmarks of Champagne culture. These locations are both Avize and Cramant – proud French villages which have contributed enormously over the years, allowing some of the finest grapes to grow on some of the oldest and most prestigious vines around.
The vines, of course, are only one aspect of the vast and complicated process of making Champagne. Then comes the pressing and eventually the ageing process. One which is kept to a strict three years in the House's cellars and has paid off magnificently. Anyone who has tasted the delight that is Leclaire Thiefaine will be well aware of the brand's rich and mature aromas.
Champagnes hailing from this House are often also noted for their mineral content. Likewise, citrus is a popular flavour, made possible by the growth and cultivation of some of the finest vineyards around. Precisely what one would expect from top-class Champagne made by the purists.
Of course, as lovers of wine for an age, Leclaire Thiefaine don't limit their production to solely Champagne. Also in their extensive catalogue are a number of notable sparkling wines which possess similar qualities, further endorsing a fantastic range that any Champagne lover should be keen to get their hands on.
