External Reviews for Ruinart Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Rosé
Utterly delicious, totally fruit-driven and with surprising finesse, this is just the second Ruinart Brut Rose cuvee produced by Fred Panaiotis, the young, highly talented new chef de caves. If he keeps this up, Ruinart, the oldest Champagne house, could be a superstar in the making.
An animal aroma, with wild cherry and citrus notes, marks this vinous, concentrated rosé. It has power and persistence, thus is more suited to food — think lobster in a cream sauce — than casual sipping. Drink now through 2010.

A delicious Champagne full of rose petal wheat cherry and citrus notes all supported by a vivid acidity and chalky texture. An innate sense of power on a lightweight frame. Lengthy finish. Drink now through 2006. Wine Spectator.
An elegant, serious rosé Champagne with none of the tannins that can sneak into rosé; like its traditional sister, the yeasts are demure; delicious berry flavors come through strongly.
There’s a smoky undertow to this lively rosé, mixing with hints of ripe black cherry, guava, biscotti and spice. Elegant overall thanks the fine balance and detailed, creamy texture. Drink now through 2017.
The NV Brut Rosé is made in a similarly elegant and refined style, even though it isn’t quite as expressive as the Blanc de Blancs at the outset. With time in the glass the Pinot qualities come through with greater focus. The NV Rosé offers excellent length and a polished personality in the signature Ruinart style. This is Lot: LAD7ZCA, disgorged July, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2011.
