Ruinart Dom Ruinart Rose 6 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Dom Ruinart Vintage Rosé is a rare expression from the most noble of Chardonnay, a magical experience, a genuine feast for the senses. Dom Ruinart Rosé 1996 is a unique type of blend for a Rosé champagne, based mainly on Chardonnay grapes: a blend of 84% Grands Grus Chardonnay (55% from the Côte des Blancs and 45% from the Montagne de Reim) and 16% Pinot Noir Grands Crus fully vinified in red from VERZENAY and VERZY.

A fresh, elegant rosé, with just a hint of strawberry and cherry flavors, while the citrus and smoke notes dominate. Very refined and well-integrated, with a firm aftertaste of cherry and spice. Best from 2010 through 2030. -BS Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1996 Dom Ruinart Rose 750ml

Presented in a traditional 18th century style bottle, Ruinart Brut Rose with its orange-yellow colour and its bouquet of rose petals, sweet raspberries and orange peel is delightful! A lively, well-balanced cuvee with long-lasting bubbles, Ruinart
