The 1988 vintage was a cool year. This vintage ages incredibly well as prooves the current form of this Dom Ruinart Rosé 1988. This champagne is a blend of 80% Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs Grand Cru villages ( Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil) and 20% Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims Grand Cru villages ( Sillery, Puisieulx, Verzenay) vinified as a red wine. For red wines, the winemaking is done in a Burgundy style with a daily stirring of the grape skins. Ruinart created a great rosé champagne expressing all together honey and red berry ( cherry, rapsberry) notes and a final sensation of plum. It is quaffable and deep on the palate, with dynamism and freshness. This champagne aged on lees for at least 10 years.
