Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV Champagne

The longest-established Champagne house of all, Ruinart has an affinity with chardonnay's freshness, finesse and elegance and all of its finest cuvées lead with this variety, even its prestige rosé. "We hate oxygen!" declares Frederic Panaïotis, Chef de Cave; Ruinart use a pneumatic press to guard the juice against oxidation and nitrogen gas to protect the wine at every production stage. They are also adverse to oak; vinification only takes place in stainless steel. This meticulous attention to detail along with the distinctive rounded bottles, give Ruinart its well deserved reputation. Ruinart's crayeres were dug by hand - the deepest measuring 38 meters in height beneath the vault - and their numerous tunnels criss-cross over a length of more than eight kilometres.

Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is made primarily with grapes from Premier Crus from the Cote des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terriors. The blend is formed of 100% Chardonnay grapes from various years (20 to 25% of which are wines reserve from the previous two years).

A pale yellow golden hue with slight luminous qualities. On the nose, fresh ripe fruits are ever present leading to a floral palate combined with peaches and hints of pineapple, this well-rounded elegant champagne leaves hints of citrus fruits through to the long finish.

Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Dosage: 9 g/L

“Pale lemon colour. Youthful, gunpowdery mineral nose with straw, floral and lemon notes. Tart, linear, driven palate. Super lean and fresh with a succulent, fruity finish. Can be closed and muted at first but opens up to a beautiful, soft, toasty richness. The 2010 based cuvée is exceptionally good and shows remarkably in magnums. The 2011 was notably lesser whereas the 2012 based ones are opulent and caressing with generous tropical fruit. Beware of storage conditions as the clear glass allows the light to spoil it quickly.”

“Seems just a tad sweet to me but it certainly ticks the boxes and is fresh enough.”

“A very appealing style that captures the elegance of chardonnay in a way that is still immensely satisfying. The aromas are all based around lemon, grapefruit, fresh floral notes and stone fruits. The palate delivers a ripe impression, flavorsome and full, with peach custard and lemon brulé. Acidity is nicely placed below. Drink now.”

“(full malo; 9 g/l dosage; LAH9T): Light yellow-gold. Smoky citrus and orchard fruits on the deeply perfumed, mineral-tinged nose. Offers broad, toasty orange and pear skin flavors with an undercurrent of dusty minerals. Picks up floral and ginger nuances with air, along with hints of iodine and tarragon. Rich yet lively blanc de blancs with powerful back-end lift and finishing grip.”

“NV Blanc de Blancs. Good toasty autolysis-induced nose. Extremely brisk and appetising - seems much drier to me than the launch offering in this new, clear flask bottle. Very clean and fresh.”

“A strong whiff of graphite turns quickly to vanilla and coffee flavors on the palate, with a candied citrus accent. Delicate and detailed, with a firmness on the lingering aftertaste of vanilla and lemon.”
