Ruinart is the oldest Champagne house, exclusively producing champagne since 1729. Founded by Nicolas Ruinart in the Champagne region in the city of Reims, the house is today owned by the parent company LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA. The uncle of Nicolas Ruinart, Dom Thierry Ruinart, for whom the house's flagship wine is named, was a close friend of Dom Pérignon,[1] The family lineage ownership lasted until financial assistance from Baron Philippe de Rothschild was taken in 1950, and in 1963 the entire business was sold to Moët & Chandon before it became part of the LVMH group.
