Critical Acclaim

WS93 – Wine Spectator
A graceful Champagne, sleek and finely knit, with a subtle range of nectarine, lemon curd, almond blossom and ground ginger flavors, expanding on the silky mousse. Offers a lingering, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through.

JS93 – James Suckling
A very appealing and satisfying style that fully captures the elegance and poise of chardonnay. The aromas here are all based around lemons, grapefruit, honey, fresh floral notes, stone fruits and toasty autolysis ? which is somewhat of a signature for this Champagne. The palate delivers a ripe, flavorsome impression of peach custard and lemon cr?me br?l?e. The acidity is nicely placed and the the finish upbeat with vibrant fruit expression.

WE92 – Wine Enthusiast
Ruinart is a Chardonnay house, so this wine can be considered one of its signature cuv?es. With some bottle age, it is crisp while also toasty with secondary flavors that are balancing the apple and citrus fruits. The wine is well balanced, the soft aftertaste still in keeping with its crisper, textured flavors.

Tasting Notes

The wine shows a superb, golden yellow color with a beautiful luminosity and a fine and persistent mousse. The nose is clean and intense with warm, rich notes of brioche, French toast and roasted almonds. On the palate the wine is very supple and harmonious, with notes of honey and minerals on the long, sustained finish. Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is produced from a blend of 100% premiers crus Chardonnay grapes from the best of recent vintages. Grapes from the estate vineyards in Sillery and Brimont (ancestral home of the Ruinart family) are joined by carefully selected grapes from other premiers crus vineyards in the C?te de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims.
