With its very recognisable bottle from the 18th Century, Ruinart Rosé takes on a charming springtime colour of delicate pomegranate rosé with very light orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent ring of beads.
- FRA - Champagne
Strawberry/cherry, a little spice, aniseed, roses – it’s what you might call a red wine-like style. Soft and fluffy with ripe fruit, though not sweet, a fine tingling bubble and cherry fruited finish. Vinous and flavoursome. Great to drink too. A beautiful wine to my tastes.

Winery Tasting Notes
The first olfactory notes allow the smooth aromas of freshly gathered red fruit (cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry) to develop, adorned with soft floral and exuberant tropical fruit fragrances (rose, pomegranate, lychee and guava) and sharpened by several spicy notes (tonka bean and nutmeg).
A fine, supple, rounded silky wine with intense generous notes of red fruits, gentle spices enlivened with a touch of mint for a long bold finish.
Ruinart Rosé is a truly festive champagne, which is a delight to drink throughout a meal from aperitif to dessert. It will be enhanced by thin slices of fine Italian prosciutto (San Daniele, Parma, etc.). A starter of mi-cuit salmon, or salmon prepared as a Japanese “tataki”, will reveal its many facets. For a main course, it will be an admirable accompaniment for a leg of milk-fed lamb or a low temperature cooked veal fillet. At the end of the meal it will find its full expression with a berry soup enhanced with an excellent Modena balsamic vinegar.
