Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Straw yellow colour with golden yellow highlights, clear and brilliant, fine and persistent bubbles and cordon. Open nose, on pear, melted butter and cashew nut, with a hint of lime. Attack on the rather fine and numerous bubbles. Mid-palate with acidity and freshness, long and acidic finish, with the melted butter and cashew nuts of the nose.

 

Robe
Straw with green tints

Features

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 ?

Classified as a historical monument in 1931, "Les Crayeres" date back to Roman times. Located in the city of Reims, the stones extracted from these caves were used for the fortifications of the city. Offering ideal conditions for fermentation and maturation of wine, Ruinart was the first of the great Champagne houses to use them.

 

Domain and appellation

  • Ruinart

    It was during a trip to the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés that Dom Thierry Ruinart understood the potential of his native region of Champagne in the development of the famous bubbles. Officially created in 1729 by his nephew Nicolas Ruinart, the prestigious home today continues to flourish through the signature: "The oldest Champagne house."

     

    • Terroir: Ruinarts' champagnes are made from grapes from the Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims, Sézannais the hillsides and the valley of the Vesle. The Ruinart area covers nearly 17 hectares of vines but the house buys 90% of grapes from growers suppliers.

     

    • Viticulture : The harvest is manual.
