Dom Ruinart 2004 is a rare wine, from vineyards that are among the most beautiful in Champagne, offering a remarkable tasting experience.
Dom Ruinart 2004 is made entirely of Chardonnay Grands Crus: 69% from the Côte des Blancs (predominantly from Chouilly, Avize and Le Mesnil) and 31% from the northern slope of the Montagne de Reims (predominantly Sillery and Puisieulx). This is a perfect combination giving this vintage its ephemeral, delicate structure.
Eight to ten years of ageing in the depths of the Maison’s Crayères bring out this exceptional wine’s aromatic complexity, allowing it to attain a perfect balance between strength and delicacy.

Winery Tasting Notes
At first, on the nose, Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2004 reveals sweet, gentle notes of chestnut, coconut and fresh bread. These biscuity hints very quickly give way to floral and citrus fruit aromas.
On the palate this vintage is initially direct but silky, sustained by mineral notes. The ephemeral nature of the Dom Ruinart 2004 is then revealed through citrus fruit freshness with touches of gentian. The very long finish is characterised by grapefruit and kumquat zest notes.
The ephemeral, delicate structure of this vintage combined with outstanding freshness, typical of the House, offers the potential to complement very sophisticated dishes such as sea bream ceviche Peruvian style, or a lobster carpaccio with lemon caviar and coriander oil.
