Dom Ruinart Rose
Description & Technical Information
-
The rosé prestige cuvée of Champagne Ruinart, Dom Ruinart Rosé is a Grand Cru only blend of Dom Ruinart Chardonnay topped off with 15-20% red wine from the Montagne de Reims. Since the first vintage in 1966, this cuvée is consistently ranked amongst the greatest rosés on the market and this 2002 expression is one of the absolute best. The Pinot Noir red wine is sourced from the Grand Cru villages of Sillery and Verzenay and macerated on the skins for nine days before pressing, extracting the pink colour and soft fruit tannins. Blending this red wine into the assemblage gives a rosé with a vibrant, deep coral colour.

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.

Tasting Note: The primary aroma of this vintage is surprisingly intense and complex: notes of exotic fruits like guava and orange, blueberry and truffle. The richness of the 2002 vintage boasts exceptional depth on the palate. It offers a fine fruity, floral and spicy aromatic range. The Chardonnay emerges simultaneously as round, precise and subtle; the finish allows the Pinot Noir fruit to shine. Longer ageing in the cellars will rank it amongst the greatest Dom Ruinart Rosé vintages ever. A real triumph.
