Ruinart Champagne Blend Champagne R de Ruinart Brut 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

R de Ruinart Champagne, as with all Ruinart champagnes, is made with a high proportion of Chardonnay giving great finesse and elegance that's so characteristic of Ruinart champagnes, but the addition of 60% Pinot Noir gives this wine a full bodied, supple and smooth quality. The House of Ruinart was established as long ago as 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart - creating the first Champagne House. Presented in an elegant 18th century style bottle, this champagne reveals such a fresh, distinctive, rose petal pink colour. Vintage: N/V Grapes: 40% Chardonnay from the Côtes de Blancs and 60% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims Origin: Champagne, France Notes: A yellow colour with golden glints and a crystal-like brilliance. Fine bubbles that rise in an airy, long-lasting line. On the nose the wine is delicate and fresh. White-fleshed fruit (pear), dried fruits (almond). Scents of white flowers (acacia). Aromas of fresh butter & Viennese pastries Taste: The palate is perfectly balanced and fresh with an extremely long finish. Serve: Excellent on its own as an aperitif or ideal for an all-champagne meal. Also perfect with delicate dishes such as pan-fried scallops or sole meuniere. ABV: 12.5%

There are many famous Champagne houses that lay claim to being ythe oldest Champagne house, but only Ruinart can truly justify in truth, this claim. Established in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart, a year after a Royal decree was passed allowing the transport of bottled wines, (Sparkling wines can not be transported in casks) this fine Champagne house has gone from strength to strength, now producing some of the best champagnes available on the market. Grapes : 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay Region : France / Champagne AOC Maker : Amélie Chatin Notes : Delicious, full, biscuity, Pinot characterised bouquet. with full, fresh, berry fruit flavours on the palate and a firm mousse with delightful creamy characters. A truly superb champagne. Serve : On its own, as an aperitif, or with cream sauce dishes and fish ABV : 12%

Lovely harmony. This starts with an explosive nose of toasted brioche, mineral and honey, adding a citrus element on the palate, all in a firm, full-bodied package. Lingering aftertaste... Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Dom Ruinart R de Ruinart Brut 750ml
