R De Ruinart Brut, Champagne Ruinart NV

Tasting notes

A good, meaty, biscuity, Pinot-influenced nose. Full, bright, leafy, red berry fruit on the palate, with a firm mousse and creamy character.

Producer note

Many Champagne houses would like to lay claim to the accolade of being the longest established house, but only one may do so in truth. Ruinart was established in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart one year after the Royal decree which permitted the transport of bottled wines. The house style is fresh, with a dominance of Chardonnay over the two Pinots. Even in the non-vintage cuvées Chardonnay will typically account for 40% of the blend, sometimes 50%. Vintage cuvées will generally include over 50%.

Vinification

Hand picked grapes. Fermentation in temperature-regulated stainless steel fermenters. Full malolactic fermentation.

Dosage : 9 g/l

Grape

Pinot Noir 57%, Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Meunier 3%

Food match

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. It is also excellent with local cheeses with a short ripening time, such as Chaource or a very creamy Langres.
