The intensity and simultaneous lightness of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is achieved by using a blend of 100% chardonnay, mainly from premiers crus in Côte des Blancs (69%) and Montagne de Reims (31%), and 20-25% reserve wines. The chalkiness of the soil allows for a pure expression of the grape’s flavours, and ageing in the crayères develops its aromatic richness.
Tasting Note: Beautiful pale golden yellow colour with gentle green reflections, a vibrant, luminous colour. Active effervescence with a persistent release of bubbles. At first very intense on the nose, with fresh fruit notes, particularly ripe citrus fruits. A second refined floral nose with notes of white flowers and fruits (white peaches, pineapple). A supple, harmonious attack on the palate, very rounded.
