Available for:

The prestige cuvée of Champagne Ruinart, Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a Grand Cru only, pure-Chardonnay blend. With grapes sourced predominantly from the Côte des Blancs, this cuvée is a firm and muscular champagne with a reductive style that rewards patience if left in the cellar.

Weather: The 2006 vintage was a year of mixed weather. It began with a rainy spell and late spring, but with little or no frost in the vineyards. Early summer was positive, with the months of June and July creating perfect conditions for flowering. Although there were some storms in late-July, the overall health of the vines was great since the weather remained hot through to the harvest with spells of rain in August promoting even healthier grapes.

Tasting Note: This champagne is a pale yellow with green reflections, that on the nose presents a very fresh and fruity note, an abundance of lemon, nectarines and other white fleshy fruits with a more floral ending. On the palate a slightly toasted brioche flavour gives way to an elegance of citrus and natural sweetness with plenty of refreshing acidity.
