Our oenologists' opinion
Its clear straw-yellow color with bubbles rather discreet offers an open nose and brioche, on vanilla notes and white pepper. In the mouth, this fine and elegant champagne has a rich and complex attack with a light effervescence, ultra thin bubbles. Spicy and vinous finish.
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 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
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 elaboration of the famous wine of bubbles. Officially created in 1729 by his nephew Nicolas Ruinart, the prestigious house continues today to thrive through its signature: "The oldest house in Champagne."
- Terroir: The champagnes of the Ruinart house are made from grapes from the Côte des Blancs, the Montagne de Reims, the slopes of the Sézannais and the Vesle Valley. The estate Ruinart extends on nearly 17 hectares of vines but the house gets 90% of grapes from winegrowers suppliers.
- Viticulture: Harvesting is done manually.
- Vinification: Dom Ruinart 2006 is entirely composed of Chardonnay Grands Crus: 63% of the Côte des Blancs (dominant Chouilly, Le Mesnil and Avize) and 37% of the northern slopes of the Montagne de Reims (dominating Sillery and Puisieulx). A perfect combination that brings to this vintage an aerial and delicate structure.
