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.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Chardonnay: 72% Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger | 28% Montagne de Reims: Puisieulx, Sillery | Pinot Noir: Sillery, Verzenay
Grape Varieties: 80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir | inc. 20% Red Wine
Ageing: 9 years on the lees
Dosage: 5.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2026

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.

Expert Reviews
17.5/20
Richard Hemming MW
“Dosage 5.5 g/l. 80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir as red wine.
Lovely ornate yeasty nose and a really rich, expressive and lengthy palate. Really benefits from the maturity. Delicious and noble. (RH)”
91/100
Richard Juhlin
“Even more Dom Perignon-rosé like than before. Fatter, a bit heavier than most vintages with a major influence by Pinot Noir-tones and with the typical yeast culture that have not been fully roasted yet. The structure is amazing but the aromas are too undeveloped in the current situation.”
95/100
James Suckling
“Big on the autolysis wow factor, this chardonnay-driven rosé is a very impressive Champagne from the outset with a wealth of toasty autolysis, sweet spices and flinty lemon with some pink grapefruit too. The intensity is impressive, as is the complexity and freshness. The palate has smooth-honed shape and fine acidity with some assertive ripe phenolics making for superior structure and depth. Flavors of blood orange, peach and lemon drive deep and the finish is superb. Drink now or for up to five years.”
17/20
Richard Hemming
“Disgorged September 2012. Dosage 5.5 g/l. Juicy, ripe and with a great deal of Chardonnay character dominating the palate. Fleshy, juicy and fragrant.”
94/100
Wine Spectator
“Richly aromatic, with smoky mineral, roasted nut and toasted brioche notes, this is elegant and harmonious on the palate, displaying lively, focused acidity, a fine bead and flavors of strawberry pâte de fruit, pastry cream, white peach and ground spice. Drink now through 2027. ”
95/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2002 Dom Ruinart Rosé bursts across the palate with superb intensity and plenty of 2002 vintage opulence. Pomegranate, blood orange, red cherry, spice and white pepper are all very much alive in the glass. A rich, intense wine, the 2002 possesses terrific persistence and fabulous overall balance. The aromatics are just starting to show hints of development, but the 2002 has the pure density to drink well for many, many years. The vivid, crystalline finish is a thing of beauty. The 2002 is 80% Chardonnay (the Dom Ruinart base) with the addition of 20% still Pinot, mostly from Sillery with a dollop of Verzenay. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Drinking window: 2014 - 2032. Ruinart is unusual among Champagne houses in that the overwhelming majority of the production is still sold in France. Perhaps because of that, Ruinart does not enjoy the same visibility as many of its peers. The wines, though, are magnificent. As always, the Ruinart Champagnes are done entirely in steel, with full malo. Dom Ruinart stands out from most other Blancs de Blancs for its powerful, broad texture, much of which comes from the significant presence of Chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims. The production cycles in Champagne are always a bit shocking relative to the norm in other regions. Chef de Caves Frédéric Panaiotis arrived in 2007, but it will still be another few years before we taste his Dom Ruinarts!”
