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.

Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

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

Aroma

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).

Palate

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.
