Dom Ruinart 2007
Since its founding in 1729, the first established House of Champagne has taken pride in the excellence of its cuvées. Even so, Dom Ruinart 2007 stands out as a truly extraordinary vintage, and exceptional in the region for that year. After a sunny and very warm Spring, the cool temperatures of the Summer months did nothing to counteract the vineyard's early and rapid progress, with the grapes quickly reaching full ripeness. A blend of 100% Chardonnay exclusively from Grand Cru vineyards, Dom Ruinart 2007 is a dynamic, sculpted wine that expresses the full purity of fine Chardonnay.
All the Details
On the attack, notes of chalk, flint and oyster mingle with the smoky aromas of blonde tobacco. The nose continues into light, fresh green wood notes, married with citrus fruit and plum. Subtle fig leaf, licorice and Chinese tea add to its complexity, while the palate reveals thrilling stony vibrance and a deep intensity, marked by green citrus and grapefruit. The sap-infused and chalky finish is framed with an elegant bitter flavor.
