Description & Technical Information
-
The prestige cuvée of Champagne Ruinart, Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a Grand Cru only, pure-Chardonnay blend. With grapes sourced predominantly from the Côte des Blancs, this cuvée is a firm and muscular champagne with a reductive style that rewards patience if left in the cellar. The 1998 vintage, originally considered very good, has continuously been reappraised over the years and as a consequence is now considered an excellent vintage, producing champagnes with incredible ageing potential.

Weather: The 1998 vintage shows all the hallmarks of a truly outstanding year. The features of the vintage were a high natural sugar content in the grapes and an excellent level of acidity, indicating an exceptional overall balance and long ageing potential.

News Article: At our Launch Event in November 2014, Richard Bampfield MW guided guests through a horizontal tasting of a range of prestige cuvées from 1998. Watch his six minute video about Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 1998 here.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 12 years on the lees
Disgorged: 2010
Dosage: 6.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2026

Tasting Note: Fine bubble and hints of citrus fruit on the nose. On the palate this champagne is quite rich: a very expressive and complex wine. Intense on the mid-palate and with very good length, this is still very youthful - especially from magnum.

We acquired these magnums directly from MHUK in April 2015 when a second release was announced. The magnums are stunning: something happens with champagne aged in magnum, their evolution slows and it's like a little magic is sprinkled. Factors come into play that we can't always explain and what was a superbly rich champagne seems even more developed and complex. If you enjoy Dom Ruinart, you have to experience the same champagne in magnum. It's differently amazing.

The 1.5L magnums of Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 1998 are presented in a high-quality branded gift box as shown in the bottom left picture.
