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.

Weather: 2007 is an extraordinary vintage and one of the very few in Champagne when the harvest began in August. After a sunny and very warm spring, the months of June, July and August brought rather gloomy weather and heavy rainfall. And yet, these cool temperatures did nothing to counteract the vineyard’s early and rapid progress, with the grapes quickly reaching full ripeness.

Tasting Note: Dom Ruinart 2007 has a luminous and intense colour which contains iridescent green glints. On the nose, there is a hit of chalk, followed by flint and oyster shell notes which mingle with the smoky aromas of blonde tobacco. The nose continues into springtime notes, underscored with light aromas of sap, linden acacia, extremely fresh yellow and green citrus fruits and plums. The subtle notes of fig leaf, liquorice and fine Chinese tea enhance the complexity of the aromatic bouquet. The palate, which begins smoothly, quickly reveals a thrilling, stony liveliness and a deep intensity structured by notes of green citrus and grapefruit. The sap-infused and chalky finish is framed with an elegant bitter flavour. Dom Ruinart 2007 is a dynamic, sculpted wine that expresses the full purity of fine Chardonnay.
