2007, AN EXTRAORDINARY YEAR
In 2007, the harvest in Champagne began in August, a rare occurrence. After a sunny and very hot spring, the coolness of the summer months did not reduce the advance taken by the vines, and the berries quickly reached maturity. The harvest began in late August and extended over the first three weeks of September.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2007 has a pink hue with delicate copper glints.
The first nose reveals roasted notes of coffee and cocoa bean, mixed with aromas of candy apple and ripe citrus fruits such as tangerine, blood orange, and kumquat.
The palate reveals flavors of plum and hibiscus, complemented by ripe citrus notes that echo the olfactory profile. The cuvée presents a vibrant profile supported by a beautiful freshness in the finish.
Resident chef Valérie Radou and cellar master Frédéric Panaïotis recommend pairing this exceptional cuvée with fish dishes such as salmon tataki and marinated tuna, or white meats such as poultry or veal.
THE RUINART SERVING RITUAL
Maison Ruinart recommends storing bottles in the dark, at temperatures between 7–18°C, and a humidity level above 70%, ideally for a 7–10 year-period.
Maison Ruinart recommends serving its champagne in a tulip glass, or a white wine glass with an opening wide enough to allow the expression of the aromatic complexity and the evolution of the bubbles.
