Ruinart Blanc De Blancs Champagne

Ruinart Blanc De Blancs Champagne

  • Champagne
  • France, 750ml

Visually, the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs has a brilliant robe with a beautiful pale yellow colour and slight hints of almond green and jade green reflections. The first nose reveals intense aromas of fresh fruit: ripe lemon, juicy pear, or freshly picked peach. The secondary aromas are more floral with hints of white flowers, accompanied by a spicy touch combining ginger and pink peppercorns. Balancing tension with roundness, the enveloping structure is highlighted by fresh aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruit. With a long and delicate finale.

    Elegant and refined, this is a true connoisseur Champagne. Ruinart are the oldest Champagne house (est. 1729) and this gorgeous Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay is among the most bright and focused wines on the Champagne market. 

    Ruinart Blanc de Blancs includes some 25–30 different chardonnay crus, predominantly from the Côte des Blancs, the Montagne de Reims, the Sézannais and La Vallée de la Vesle. They reflect the rich diversity of the Champagne terroir.

    Ruinart is a low profile, yet select, Champagne house which is steeped in history. It dates back to the 17th century, the time of the famous Dom Pérignon. It was founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart in the city of Reims, the year after a Royal Decree in 1728 whereby Louis XV gave his consent for sparkling wines to be shipped in baskets containing 50 to 100 bottles. This opened the gates of Europe to champagne and thus makes Ruinart the oldest Champagne House. Nicolas' uncle was Dom Thierry Ruinart, close friend to Dom Pérignon himself and an inspiration behind the creation of this house after the Dom’s death. Its Gallo-Roman chalk cellars are now a UNESCO-classified historical monument and every two years the finest sommeliers in Europe gather there to compete for the Trophée Ruinart.

    Ruinart is now owned by LVMH and sits neatly in their portfolio of impressive Champagne houses. With a production of only 1.7 million bottles per annum, relatively speaking Ruinart is a small producer and has a surprisingly low profile.
