THE VERY FIRST EXPRESSION OF THE RUINART TASTE
- Colour : A vibrant, clear yellow colour with golden reflections.
- Nose : At first the nose is delicate, fresh and fruity, filled with white-fleshed fruits (pears, Bosc apples), apricots, as well as hazelnuts and fresh almonds. Several floral and spicy notes add an extra hint of complexity. The second nose reveals superb olfactory intensity on a more biscuity, brioche-like base.
- Mouth : Frank and direct attack on the palate. A balanced wine, rounded and full-bodied, with an attack scented with ripe fruits (greengages and nectarines). The finish is long, the well-integrated dosage giving way to the characteristic freshness of the Chardonnay which makes up most of the blend.
- Potential :
- Temperature :
- Glass : Shapely flute
- Paring with food : A perfect champagne for aperitifs whatever the occasion. It may also be served with refined, light starters such as poached oysters and seared scallops, or with a main dish such as sole meunière.

In 1729, Nicolas Ruinart founded the first Champagne house ever created. For some centuries now, his noble family has cherished their house with his same passion. The Ruinart cellars descend 3 levels and expand through 8 kilometers of galleries. It is these ancient crayères, chalk cellars that shelter the wine providing a steady temperature and a level of humidity ideal for fermentation. Chardonnay is the soul of Ruinart Champagnes, this grape grown mainly throughout the Cote des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims is found in each of their cuvées. Bright, lively, elegant and aromatic, the Ruinart taste is owed to this varietal and the careful and patient vinification it undergoes.
