Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Bright and luminous lemon yellow colour, medium bubbles, persistent in the string. Fresh nose of white flowers, white fruits, notes of fresh almonds, hint of white chocolate. Good balance, bubbles present but lacking in creaminess and smoothness. Frank character on chocolate, mocha, slightly toasted notes, hint of morello cherries. Clean finish, still young.

- Service temperature 12°
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 Crayères" date back to Gallo-Roman times. Located under the city of Reims, the stones extracted from these cellars were used for the city's fortifications. Offering ideal conditions for the fermentation and maturation of the wine, the Ruinart house was the first of the great Champagne houses to use them.
Domain and appellation
This vintage was marked by extreme dryness during the vine cycle (20% less rainfall than the ten-year average) and significant sunshine (23% more). The beginning of August and therefore the ripening period was particularly hot and dry. The second part of August was cool and very wet. What a contrast! Fortunately, the return of dry weather during the first week of September allowed the grapes to ripen well: the harvest began on 8 September in this cool, dry climate, before the return of the rains in the second half of the year, which meant that we had to sort out the grapes a little.
