Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its light straw color with green hues announces a fresh and discreet nose of fresh almonds, hazelnuts, pear and vanilla. The palate is round, big, bold, fine, full-bodied, elegant and ample with a nice envelope.

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
Ruinart owes the prestige of its Blanc de Blancs to Jean-François Barot. Master cellar of the maison from 1985 to 2002, he made this wine one of Ruinart’s true pillars by giving it a unique style signed with chardonnay.
