Ruinart Blanc de blancs 150 cl
Intensely aromatic and fresh, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is the maison’s signature champagne, created with 100% chardonnay from terroirs in Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims. Blended from the harvest of various years to ensure consistent quality, this blanc de blancs champagne is a classic example of the style – smooth with a characteristic luminosity.

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.
The brilliance of a pale golden yellow robe with light green reflections. Effervescence with a persistent release of stream of fine and delicate bubbles.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs has a surprisingly intense and fresh first nose. Notes of lemon and citron beautifully combine with aromas of pineapple and passion fruit underlined by fresh spices like ginger and cardamom. The secondary aromas reveal a subtle, floral nose with notes of white jasmine and lime-tree along with ripe white peach. These are enhanced by slightly pepper y notes of pink peppercorn, which give a fresh spicy sweetness. Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is intensely aromatic and offers a round and unexpectedly sensual palate with flavours ranging from juicy ripe peach and pear to exotic pineapple. The feeling in the mouth reveals a superb and highly refreshing finale, based on notes of citrus fruit with a surprisingly pleasant and light touch of bitterness (citron, white grapefruit). The whole is pure, neat and precise, and offers to the palate the pleasure of an harmonious wine.
It is an excellent accompaniment for seafood and shellfish; perfect with a sea bass or bream tartare. It would also be very good with seared sole.
