Ruinart Champagne Blend Champagne 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

In the champagne world where quantity precedes quality Ruinart stands for exclusiveness, elegance and savoir-faire. Made in the pure Ruinart tradition exclusively from the Chardonnay grape, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs reflects perfect harmony. The clear glass bottle, a replica from an 18th Century model, further enhances its striking luminosity. Most recent in a line of blends from chardonnay grapes, this harmonious wine will envelop palates with its warm fruity flavours. Suave, delicate this Blanc de Blancs describes the word finesse. A blend of 100% Premier Cru Chardonnay from different years it has a very beautiful pale golden yellow colour with beautiful luminosity and striking brilliance. An intense nose with notes of fresh citrus fruit, mainly lime, greets you followed by a very supple, round and harmonious palate. Good vinosity. Notes of nectarine, apricot and cherry-plum dominate a pleasingly long finish.

First bottle way to cold: Crisp bubbles dissolving into a fine mousse. A light nose with a strange finish. Second bottle, served at the correct temperature (dont freeze the bubbly!): Much fruitier, smoother softer. Very nice. Tasted at the New York Wine Experience
