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: The 2009 vintage was a difficult year at first with a mild and rainy spring. The threat of mildew was high and storms in July further raised fears for the health of the grapes. However, a warm August of uninterrupted hot and dry weather was the catalyst for an idyllic harvest. Picking began on the 12th September in perfect conditions.

Tasting Note: Dom Ruinart 2009 has a luminous and intense golden colour which contains iridescent green glints. On the nose, sun-kissed aromas of both fleshy and crisp fruit, lemon, apricot and nectarine. Notes of white flowers, fresh almond paste and orange blossom, combined with a fresh, chalky character. On the palate, rich and elegant, beautifully balanced. A flavorful and vivacious wine with a long and subtle finish.

Essi Avellan MW
“Despite having three years post-disgorgement ageing (disgorged 3/2018), upon release it is still elegantly reserved and smoky-mineral in aromatics. The year was dry and sunny but the wine had managed to keep its crunchy fruit profile with lemon, yellow apple and ripe apricots. Takes some time to open in the glass and a large-bowled burgundy shape works particularly well at its youth. On the palate it comes with ample, attractive fruitiness and fleshy mouth-feel, less on the oily side. But by no means is it soft in the way many wines of the vintage are, instead it is surprisingly crisp and invigoratingly feisty. The slow aging curve it seems to be on promises great longevity.”
