One of the Ruinart classics that never disappoints.

Pairings : This champagne is perfect as an aperitif, but can also be served as a starter with light, delicate dishes such as poached oysters or scallops a la plancha, or as a main course with sole meunière. It will also go well with local cheeses with a short maturing period, such as a Chaource or a creamy Langres.


Tasting notes : This wine has a brilliant, clear yellow colour with golden highlights. The effervescence is sustained, with a very present cordon. The initial nose is fresh and fruity, with notes of white-fleshed fruit, apricot, hazelnuts and fresh almonds. Floral and spicy notes add further complexity. The

The second nose reveals a lovely intensity, with a background of brioche and biscuity notes. A very frank attack on the palate. A well-balanced wine, fairly round and fleshy on the attack with aromas of ripe fruit. The finish is long, with the well-integrated dosage giving way to the freshness characteristic of Chardonnay, which is very present in the blend.

 

Vinification and vineyard : Ruinart was founded on 1 September 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart. His uncle, Dom Thierry Ruinart, a learned Benedictine monk, had a stroke of genius. He sensed that this new "sparkling wine", developed in his native Champagne region and much loved by the royal courts of Europe, had a bright future ahead of it. The creation of Ruinart coincided with the birth in France of the "Age of Enlightenment" and the French art of living. A genuine culture of goodness and beauty was born in France, favouring a taste that was fine and elegant, light and sophisticated, delicate and rare. Ruinart cuvées naturally found their place in this culture. Driven by a constant quest for excellence and the absolute, Ruinart has chosen Chardonnay, a rare and fragile grape variety, as the common thread running through all its cuvées.
