Ruinart Blanc de Blancs

Ruinart Blanc de Blancs

100% Chardonnay grapes grown primarily with Premiers Crus from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, both prized for their aromatic finesse. Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a well-balanced, rich and fresh wine, smooth and rounded on the palate. Flavors range from juicy ripe peach and pear to exotic pineapple, balanced with a delightful hint of bitterness (citron, white grapefruit). It is a beautiful, luminous pale gold color, enhanced by the elegance of the clear bottle.

Tasting Notes

With a unique aromatic richness, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs has a surprisingly intense and fresh first nose. Notes of lemon and citron beautifully combine with aromas of pineapple and passion fruit underlined by fresh spices like ginger and cardamom. The secondary aromas reveal a subtle, floral nose with notes of white jasmine and lime tree along with ripe white peach. These are enhanced by slightly peppery notes of pink peppercorn, which give a fresh spicy sweetness. The feeling in the mouth reveal a superb and highly refreshing finale, based on notes of citrus fruit with a surprisingly pleasant and light touch of bitterness (citron, white grapefruit). The whole is pure, neat and precise, and offers to the palate the pleasure of a harmonious wine with an extremely thirst-quenching aromatic freshness.

Chardonnay Leaf by Vik Muniz

Created by famed fine artist Vik Muniz, Chardonnay Leaf is an ode to the power of nature and its creative flow. It is comprised of a gigantic botanical representation of the Chardonnay plant, and composed of leaves, shoots and bunches taken from the Sillery vineyards. This work was created in one of the UNESCO World Heritage crayère chalk cellars belonging to Maison Ruinart, in Reims. A time-lapse film of it being produced gives some insight into the artist’s creative techniques.
