Description

Ruinart is a low profile, yet select, Champagne house which is steeped in history. It dates back to the 17th century, the time of the famous Dom Pérignon. It was founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart in the city of Reims, the year after a Royal Decree in 1728 whereby Louis XV gave his consent for sparkling wines to be shipped in baskets containing 50 to 100 bottles. This opened the gates of Europe to champagne and thus makes Ruinart the oldest Champagne House. Nicolas' uncle was Dom Thierry Ruinart, close friend to Dom Pérignon himself and an inspiration behind the creation of this house after the Dom’s death. Its Gallo-Roman chalk cellars are now a UNESCO-classified historical monument and every two years the finest sommeliers in Europe gather there to compete for the Trophée Ruinart.

Smells

Absolutely bursting with lemon zest, white flowers and green apple with hints of peaches and nectarines and a touch of minerality.

Tastes

Vibrant and very more-ish, one sip and you'll be going back for more. Citrus, jasmine and apple are joined tarragon for a rich and full palate that leads into a saline and chalky finish. Fabulous texture and lenght. Perfect with a dozen (or more) oysters! Enjoy when the mood strikes.
