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.

Dom Ruinart 2010 marks a major step in the winemaking process with the return of a once common practice: cork stoppers for ageing on lees. This process has been trialled by the cellarmasters of Ruinart since the 1998 vintage. On tasting these first trials ten years on, the difference was significant: the bottles with corks revealed tenser wine with an additional layer of complexity. Although cork is porous, over a long period of time, it remains extremely stable while metal caps allow small amounts of oxygen to continually enter the bottle. After manual disgorging, necessary for Champagne aged under cork, a tiny amount of liqueur is then added for roundness. With just 4 grams of sugar per litre, Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 is Extra Brut.

Weather: The 2010 harvest was marked by a very cold winter with heavy frost patches. Weather improved in the spring and early summer months with cool and consistent temperatures. During August and September storms and humid conditions complicated the ripening process and much of the Pinot Noir being thin skinned largely succumbed to rot. Dom Perignon's vineyards in the Grand Cru village of Verzenay produced some outstanding Pinot Noir, but there weren't many examples of great PN from 2010. By contrast Chardonnay was super high quality, one of the best Chardonnay years within the last ten years.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | 90% Côte des Blancs: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger | 10% Montagne de Reims: Puisieulx & Sillery
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Lees Ageing: 9 years
Disgorged: March 2020
Dosage: 4 g/l

Tasting Note: Really deep flavoured. Very obviously more depth of flavour and tension than the 2009 Dom Ruinart. The cork ageing does seem to enhance the savoury, reduced character reminiscent of white burgundy. Very long with lemon notes. A truly exciting wine that is still extremely youthful. - Tasted by Jancis Robinson MW
