An elegant Blanc de Blancs from an exceptional vintage

The producer

The very first Champagne House founded in 1729, Ruinart is an essential reference. The historic Ruinart Champagne House owes its creation to the visionary and pioneering monk, Dom Thierry Ruinart. Located in the heart of Reims, the Ruinart House watches over a treasure. Unique, historical landmarks and architectural prowesses, the Ruinart chalk quarries have been classified as a historic site since 1931 and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2015. Located at nearly 40 metres below ground, in the darkness and coolness of the cathedral-like cellars, the precious bottles wait to be brought to light. Elegance, style and timelessness define the DNA of the Ruinart Champagne House, which is one of the most valued brands in France, embodying the excellence of the French ‘’art de vivre’’ in all four corners of the world.

The wine

Produced from great terroirs and made only during exceptional harvests, the Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs wine, which has only had 26 vintages, highlights the aromatic richness of Chardonnay, the iconic grape variety of the Ruinart Champagne House.

The vintage

A prodigious vintage, 2002 joins the lineage of the greatest years and highlights the extraordinary purity of Chardonnay. An exceptional vintage and a legendary champagne, Dom Ruinart 2002 embodies a magical vintage in lign with the noble and prestigious style of the Champagne house.

The blend

A prestigious champagne, Dom Ruinart 2002 pays tribute to the nobility of Chardonnay, the house’s iconic grape variety that makes their DNA. The blend comprises the finest Grands Crus and reflects the distinctive Côte des Blancs terroirs, including Chouilly and Avize Grand Crus (72%), completed by crus from the Montagne de Reims (28%).

The tasting

Colour

Sparkling, Dom Ruinart 2002 enters the light, adorned with its light yellow colour shimmering with green hues, highlighting the regular effervescence and finesse of the string of bubbles.

Nose

The aromatic bouquet, bursting with freshness, is marked by delicate floral scents and notes of citrus fruit, pear and bergamot. Aeration gives it time to discover its multifaceted personality, revealing a delicate and sweet framework with notes of brioche and coconut underlining the minerality of this complex bouquet.

Palate

On the palate, Dom Ruinart 2002 exhudes refinement and elegance. The acidic flavours of citrus fruits and the sweetness of exotic fruits combine perfectly with the minerality, a characteristic quality of the greatest limestone terroirs, giving it a flinty aroma. The refined body dances with both vivacity and energy on the palate and preserves its caressing texture and fine silhouette, leading to a long shimmering and pure finish.

An elegant Dom Ruinart expressing prodigious purity and finesse.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve at 10-12°C.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Close to 30% of the Chardonnay that as always (despite the absence of blanc de blancs from its label) dominates Ruinart's prestige cuvee comes - specifically in the case of their 2002 Brut Dom Ruinart - from the northern Montagne de Reims, though the rest is from the Cote des Blancs (predominantly Avize and Chouilly). Hints of lees autolysis and heliotrope perfume cap a nose in which very ripe sickle pear predominates. Happily, an efficacious squirt of fresh lime lends refreshing and vivacious acidity to the pear on a lush and gently effervescent palate. Pungently struck-flint and iodine-like notes as well as hints of lightly toasted almond and hazelnut add allure to a generously fruity finish. This might well reward a couple of years' bottle age, though its highly appealing present personality is very much tied up with freshness.
