Ruinart Champagne Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru 1998

Member Review by Lara at Oriel:

Yeasty brioche with apple pie aromatics and crisp refreshing minerality. Aged ( I think) at least 8 yrs sur lie and then allowed to rest with the dosage for another 2 yrs-- but still not overly heavy, it maintains a fresh quality to it. This is a seriously good champagne.
