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.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | 82% Côte des Blancs: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger | 18% Montagne de Reims: Puisieulx & Sillery
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Lees Ageing: 8 years
Disgorged: March 2018
Dosage: 4 g/l
Alcohol: 12.5%
Drink: Now to 2030+

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.

Expert Reviews
97/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2009 Dom Ruinart has been absolutely fabulous on two separate occasions. Chef de Caves Frédéric Panaïotis turned out a brilliant edition of this tête de cuvée that offers a compelling balance of richness and vibrancy. Citrus, mineral, spice and dried flowers are all beautifully delineated throughout. In 2009 Dom Ruinart has a bit less fruit from the Montagne de Reims and more from the Côte des Blancs (specifically Cramant, Avize, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) than has often been the case. This approach gives the wine more tension and steeliness than readers might expect in a vintage known for generally forthcoming Champagnes. I would not be in any rush to open the 2009, as it very clearly needs time. The only question is how much. Superb.”

“Quite rich, with the lower acid level characteristic of this vintage but very welcoming and drinking well now and with more vivacity than many 2009s.”
