Ruinart, the first Champagne House founded in 1729, is located in the heart of Reims. Elegance, style and timelessness are part of the Ruinart Champagne House's very DNA. Regarded as one of the most valued brands in France, Ruinart embodies the excellence of the French ‘’way of life’’ in all four corners of the world.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is made predominantly from Champagne Premiers Crus stemming from the Cote des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. Their aromatic finesse is combined with the roundness of the Sezannais crus and the freshness of the Vesle valley.
The vinification and ageing
Following the manual harvest, the grapes undergo a first fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. At the end of this process, malolactic fermentation is carried out.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from different vintages of Chardonnay.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is characterised by a beautiful pale yellow color with golden and green highlights. The fine effervescence is persistent.
The bouquet is intense and reveals aromas of fresh fruit such as citrus and exotic fruit, reminiscent of pineapple. When swirled, floral aromas are expressed with notes of linden flower, then white peach.
On the palate, the attack is supple. The mouth is round and harmonious. This champagne truly enchants the palate due to its voluptuous texture supported by a beautiful freshness. The finish is mineral.
Food and wine pairing
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs will perfectly complement scallop carpaccio or sea bream tartar. Pineapple and prawn skewers will match the freshness of Ruinart's Blanc de Blancs beautifully.
The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs is a great introduction to the house style. This elegant, fragrant wine offers up an array of smoke, toastiness, minerals, ripe pears and flowers.
