We are expecting new stock in February 2022
Although not the oldest wine estate in the region, Ruinart holds the title of the oldest established Champagne House. Nicolas Ruinart founded Champagne Ruinart in 1729.

Famed for their affinity for the white-grape variety, Chardonnay dominates the blend in all of Ruinart's finest cuvées, even their prestige rosé. Favouring the reductive style, they use a pneumatic press to guard the juice against oxidation and deploy nitrogen gas to protect the wine at every production stage. They are also adverse to oak and vinify all of their wines in stainless-steel tanks. Ruinart's Crayeres were dug by hand - the deepest measuring 38 meters in height beneath the vault - and their numerous tunnels criss-cross over a length of more than eight kilometres.

Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV is made primarily from grapes sourced in the Premier Cru villages of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims. This approachable, pure and creamy non-vintage contains 20-25% reserve wines from the previous two years.

*We recommend only ordering "No Gift Box" Ruinart BdB in cases of three and not as individual magnums. Champagne in clear bottles must be stored in complete darkness and not exposed to any form of light.

Tasting Note: A pale yellow golden hue with slight luminous qualities. On the nose, fresh ripe fruits are ever present leading to a floral palate combined with peaches and hints of pineapple. This well-rounded and elegant champagne leaves hints of citrus fruits through to the long-lasting finish.

Essi Avellan MW
“Pale lemon colour. Youthful, gunpowdery mineral nose with straw, floral and lemon notes. Tart, linear, driven palate. Super lean and fresh with a succulent, fruity finish. Can be closed and muted at first but opens up to a beautiful, soft, toasty richness. The 2010 based cuvée is exceptionally good and shows remarkably in magnums. The 2011 was notably lesser whereas the 2012 based ones are opulent and caressing with generous tropical fruit. Beware of storage conditions as the clear glass allows the light to spoil it quickly.”
92/100
James Suckling
“A very appealing style that captures the elegance of chardonnay in a way that is still immensely satisfying. The aromas are all based around lemon, grapefruit, fresh floral notes and stone fruits. The palate delivers a ripe impression, flavorsome and full, with peach custard and lemon brulé. Acidity is nicely placed below. Drink now.”
92/100
Josh Raynolds
“(full malo; 9 g/l dosage; LAH9T): Light yellow-gold. Smoky citrus and orchard fruits on the deeply perfumed, mineral-tinged nose. Offers broad, toasty orange and pear skin flavors with an undercurrent of dusty minerals. Picks up floral and ginger nuances with air, along with hints of iodine and tarragon. Rich yet lively blanc de blancs with powerful back-end lift and finishing grip.”
17.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“NV Blanc de Blancs. Good toasty autolysis-induced nose. Extremely brisk and appetising - seems much drier to me than the launch offering in this new, clear flask bottle. Very clean and fresh.”
92/100
Bruce Sanderson
“A strong whiff of graphite turns quickly to vanilla and coffee flavors on the palate, with a candied citrus accent. Delicate and detailed, with a firmness on the lingering aftertaste of vanilla and lemon.”

“Very easy to purchase, great it came in 3 hours!”
Jeremy E
“Tasting Ruinart for the first time was a revelation. It is robust and smooth and vivid and almost takes your breath away with its bold loveliness and the absolute pleasure it gives. This champagne is a small notch up the price scale but a massive leap up the scale of excitement and enjoyment, 5 stars is simply not enough. The only sure-fire way to improve on the bottle is to enjoy it from magnum! I love this champagne, it always excites and never disappoints.”
