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 2002 vintage is one of the best Dom Ruinart's ever created.

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last twenty years.

News Article: Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2002 performed well in our comprehensive Prestige Cuvées from 2002 blind tasting in October 2016 with Jancis Robinson MW. Read the full write-up here.

Tasting Note: This is one of the finest Blanc de Blancs champagnes on the market. A vibrant, clear yellow colour with aromas of fresh plums and nashi pears. The freshness of citrus and tropical fruit culminates in the mouth and the result is a focused purity of exceptional length. The distinctive clear bottle for Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is based on an 18th century original and its Chardonnay persona is harmonious and elegant, capturing the House style.
