Ruinart Blanc de Blancs embodies purity of the Chardonnay grapes from which it is made exclusively. Made primarily with Premiers Crus from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, it is intensely aromatic.

The nose is powerfully reminiscent of fresh fruits with dominant notes of citrus and exotic fruits, followed by a touch of jasmine, white peaches and pink peppercorns.

The palate is both precise and clean as the wine delivers a radiant balance between roundness and smoothness.

Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is the emblem of the Ruinart Taste.

Expert Reviews

Panaïotis’ aim in this young blend is “to capture the light of Champagne,” the elegance and freshness of chardonnay. The wine articulates its philosophy vividly, driven by pure lemon fruit and delicate citrus blossoms. In younger disgorgements, there’s a wonderful hint of struck flint, harking to the reductive nature of the house. A beautifully fresh and electric style of stunning persistence and linearity, giving voice to the full and gentle minerality of the premier crus of the Côte des Blancs.

Rating 95 - Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2012 - 2013

The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs is a great introduction to the house style. This elegant, fragrant wine offers up an array of smoke, toastiness, minerals, ripe pears and flowers. The medium-bodied NV Blanc de Blancs offers tons of clarity and precision at this level, with the lingering Ruinart sweetness on the finish.

Rating 89 - Antonio Galloni Wine Advocate (DEC/2008)

Winery Tasting Notes


Beautiful pale golden yellow colour with gentle green reflections, a vibrant, luminous colour. Active effervescence with a persistent release of bubbles.


At first very intense on the nose, with fresh fruit notes, particularly ripe citrus fruits. A second refined floral nose with notes of white flowers and fruits (white peaches, pineapple).


A supple, harmonious attack on the palate, very rounded. Vinosity that is not excessive, supported by excellent freshness. Notes of nectarines, citrus fruits with a pleasant mineral quality in the finish. Long, very refreshing finish.

This maturation is a test of our Cellar Master's skill, required to tame the capriciousness of this grape unlike any other.

Brightness, intensity and elegance: in the combination of these unique traits resides the miracle that is called the "Ruinart Taste": an exclusive personality, truly in a class of its own.

Cellaring Potential

A perfect champagne for aperitifs, particularly in spring and summer.It is an excellent accompaniment for seafood and shellfish; perfect with a sea bass or bream tartare. It would also be very good with seared sole.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Frédric Panaïotis grew up between his grandparent’s chardonnay vines in Champagne and chardonnay remains close to his heart, making him right at home as chef de cave at Ruinart. The longest established champagne house of all has an affinity with chardonnay’s freshness, finesse and elegance, and all of its best cuvées lead with the variety, even its prestige rosé. Without the might of Moët & Chandon, the brand impact of Veuve Clicquot or the cachet of Krug, Ruinart lurks as the low profile member of the Louis Vuitton-Moët Hennessy family. On Reim’s famed Rue de Crayères, its premises hides behind the grand street presence of Pommery and Veuve Clicquot. Its low profile is just as Panaïotis would have it. “In France we have a saying, if you live underground, you live happy!” he says. But on the strength of its current cuvées, Ruinart has no need to lay low.

Champagne is planted to just twenty-eight percent chardonnay, making this the rarest of the region’s threekey varieties, and the most difficult to source. Ruinart owns just ten percent of its vineyards, includinglongstanding resources of fifteen hectares of chardonnay at Sillery and Puisieulx on the eastern slopes of theMontagne de Reims, providing a richer and rounder style than the Côte des Blancs. Long-term contracts withgrowers form the vast bulk of Ruinart’s supplies, supplemented in recent times through vineyards acquiredfrom Lanson and Joseph Perrier. This has enabled the house to increase its annual production from 1.4million to more than 2.5 million bottles over the past two decades.

Ruinart’s distinctive rounded bottles make riddling challenging and the house relies exclusively on gyropalettes, which Panaïotis claims give a better result by far. The clear glass of these bottles makes the wine susceptible to lightstruck degradation, making it vital that they are stored in the dark.

Ruinart has occupied its premises in Reims since 1768 and it was the first in Champagne to use the third century Roman Crayères (chalk mines) under the city to age its champagnes. Its location on top of the hill make its eight kilometres of cellars some of the deepest and most spectacular in Champagne, plunging to depths of up to thirty-eight metres. These are the only cellars in Champagne classified as a national monument. A distinguished home for such graceful champagnes.
