THE VERY FIRST EXPRESSION OF THE RUINART TASTE
- Colour : Luminous yellow with pale green reflexions
- Nose : This vintage’s nose reveals the sweet, gentle notes of chestnut, coconut and fresh bread. This biscuity side to the wine very quickly gives way to the aromas of flowers (iris, lily-of-the-valley and the flowers of Seville orange trees) and citrus fruits (bergamot and citron). Just beneath the surface several mineral (wet rock and flint) and iodised saline notes make their appearance.
- Mouth : 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 with just the slightest hints of salinity.
- Potential :
- Temperature :
- Glass : Shapely flute
- Paring with food : A sea bass ceviche Peruvian style, or a lobster carpaccio with lemon caviar and coriander oil.
Discover 5 CHAMPAGNES in our cellar
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.
