Champagne Ruinart Overview
+
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 2004 vintage saw an initial winter of mild temperatures with intermittent storms and hail. The spring and summer months were hot and sunny and the sugar levels late in September produced good quality fruits, especially for the Pinot Noir grapes. A huge harvest in general for the region. Overall many experts believe that 2004 is one of the greatest vintages of the last two decades.

“The Dom Ruinart Rosé needed more time; 2004 was rather hot and dry without any particular hiccups. An overcast summer and heavy yields raised concerns for a fragile ripening. But a dream September, with 20% more sunshine and 80% less rain, brought healthy grapes and a balanced serenity to the wine, which is famously dominated by Chardonnay.

81% grand cru Chardonnay and 19% red wine for colour and aroma. Rose petal pink with burgeoning subtle hints of copper and gentle bubbles. Complex scents of peach and quince are accompanied by an exotic touch of Asian spices and sandlewood. A welcome touch of noble, ripe tannins makes this a wine for fine food such as feathered game or even scallops. It has a long life ahead of it.”

“Fashionable deep salmon pink and only a sluggish but persistent bead. Really very serious umami nose. Lip smacking! Excellent mouth presence and a dry, savoury finish. There is nothing namby pamby about this wine. Long finish, and masses of red fruit flavour on the way there. Excellent acidity. Good stuff!”

“Tasted blind. Pale Aperol colour. Pretty smart toasty nose. Lovely start with rose-petal aromas. A really complete wine that is surely a tip to champagne? Reminds me a bit of Dom Pérignon rosé.
Drink 2017-2025”
