You will like to know that…

Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a champagne made from grapes from the Premier Crus de la Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. A pure Chardonnay, considered to be "the emblem of taste Ruinart". It is pleasant and lively, a gastronomic and seductive champagne. A great classic and a value that is sure to always surprise.

Ruinart is a "Grand Chic" and contemporary luxury brand, which has become a true symbol of aesthetics. The "old-fashioned" bottle, with its round and voluptuous curves, is an object rich in elegance.

Founded in 1729, Ruinart was the first House of Champagne. For over two centuries, the family, now noble and renamed Ruinart de Brimont in 1817, managed the house with the same consistency.

Good. Nice roundness and freshness but I expected that little something extra that makes the difference. That said this is still a good buy

4 /5

- Made in the pure Ruinart tradition exclusively from the Chardonnay grape, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs reflects perfect harmony. Its striking luminosity is further enhanced by the clear glass bottle, a replica from an 18th Century model.
- Most recent in a line of blends from chardonnay grapes, this harmonious wine will envelop palates with its warm fruity flavours. Suave, delicate, well-balanced, this Blanc de blancs will rise to all occasions; a deliberately seducing champagne which will tempt you.
- Blend of 100% Premier Cru Chardonnay from different years.
- Very beautiful pale golden yellow colour. Beautiful luminosity and striking brilliance. A profuse mousse with a sustained ring of beads.
- An intense first nose with notes of fresh citrus fruit, mainly lime. A very fine and flowery second nose.
- Very supple, round and harmonious palate. Good vinosity. Notes of nectarine, apricot and cherry-plum. Good intensity.
