ROBERT PARKER 88 / 100
The first established champagne House. Founded in 1729. Chardonnay is the golden thread of the Ruinart Taste and aromatic freshness of the wines. Les Crayères: ageing of the wines in chalk cellars offering the triple benefit of: - a constantly stable temperature, - the complete absence of vibration and a perfect humidity level, - providing ideal conditions for the fermentation and maturation of the Ruinart wines. Blanc de Blancs: flagship of the Maison. Symbol of timeless and elegance.
40% Chardonnay, 57% Pinot Noir, 3% Meunier
A vibrant, clear yellow colour with golden reflections. Good brilliance with sustained effervescence and a very persistent foam.
On the nose the wine is delicate, fresh and fruity filled dominated by white-fleshed fruits (pear), apricot as well as hazelnuts and fresh almonds. Floral, spicy notes leading to delicious flavours of brioche and biscuit, for an extra touch of complexity. Frank and direct attack on the palate. A balanced wine, rounded and full-bodied, with an attack scented with ripe fruits (greengages and nectarines).
R de Ruinart is a perfect champagne for aperitifs whatever the occasion. It may also be served with refined, light starters such as poached oysters and seared scallops, or with a main dish such as sole meunière. It is Also excellent with local cheeses with a short ripening time such as Chaource or a very creamy Langres.
