Description & Technical Information
-
Ruinart Rosé NV is a Pinot Noir dominant blend using grapes sourced from Premiers Crus only and 20-25% reserve wines from the previous two years. The Pinot Noir originates from vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne and the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and uniquely, Montagne de Reims. Nearly 20% of the Pinot Noir is fermented separately to produce red wine which is subsequently added back to the blend before second fermentation.

15.5/20
Richard Hemming MW
“Dosage 9 g/l. 55% Pinot Noir (of which 19% is red wine), 45% Chardonnay. Three to four years on lees.
Simple red fruit nose, chewy texture with a refreshing finish. Less substance and grain than the Veuve Clicquot rosé. (RH)”

Essi Avellan MW
“Deep bright cherry red colour. Clean, primary fruity nose of cherries and strawberry jam with attractive gunpowder notes. Rich, round, sweet fruity palate, delivers what the nose promises. Deep berried style but beautifully in absence of any excess tannin.”
93/100
James Suckling
“Very attractive, bright and fragrant red fruits on the nose here. This has a wealth of fresh yeasty characters, fresh pastry and bread dough, plus red fruits, pink grapefruit, and some floral notes too. The palate has a strong nectarine and light cherry flavor thread. Chardonnay has a lot to say here; the texture is creamy and the balance right on the money. Drink now.”
92/100
Josh Reynolds
“(roughly 55% pinot noir and 45% chardonnay; LAHLF): Light orange. Red berries, potpourri, toasty lees and orange peel on the highly fragrant nose. Lively and precise, with very good focus to its wild red berry and floral pastille flavors. The orange note comes back strong on the long, penetrating finish, which features a sweet raspberry quality.”
89/100
Roger Voss
“This attractive wine is fresh and fruity, with raspberry flavors and a red cherry-skin edge of tannins. It is full and creamy, with a soft, ripe aftertaste. The bottling is ready to drink.”
