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 at the heart of all their cuvées. The Champagnes are still slowly matured in their bottles, in the cool of the underground chalk cellars "Les Crayères" some 38 metres below the city of Reims, just as they have been doing for centuries.

Winemaking

Hand picked grapes. Fermentation in temperature-regulated stainless steel fermenters. Full malolactic fermentation. Dosage : 9 g/l

Tasting Note

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

Serving Suggestion

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.
