THE ICONIC RUINART TASTE

Visually, the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs has a brilliant robe with a beautiful pale yellow color and slight hints of almond green and jade green reflections.
The first nose reveals intense aromas of fresh fruit: ripe lemon, juicy pear, or freshly picked peach. The secondary aromas are more floral with hints of white flowers, accompanied by a spicy touch combining ginger and pink peppercorns.
Balancing tension with roundness, the enveloping structure is highlighted by fresh aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruit. With a long and delicate finale.
Resident Chef Valérie Radou and Cellar Master Frédéric Panaïotis, recommend pairing this champagne with seafood or fish. Discover their Citrus Sea Bass Carpaccio recipe (preparation time: 30 minutes).

THE RUINART SERVING RITUAL
Ruinart recommends storing champagne bottles in the dark, at temperatures between 7–18°C, and with a humidity level of over 70%.
Storage lifetime: bottles under 75 cl: 12 to 18 months/75 cl: up to 24 months/over 75 cl: up to 36 months.
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.
THE SECOND SKIN CASE: SUSTAINABLE DESIGN INNOVATION
In 2020, as part of its continuous approach to sustainable design, Maison Ruinart committed to substitute all single boxes with its second skin presentation case, which is nine times lighter than its predecessor. This recyclable case is moulded to the shape of the bottle and reduces its carbon footprint by 60%.
The elegant case can be conserved until the bottle is served, protecting all of the Ruinart taste by shielding the champagne from exposure to the light. Suitable for cellar and refrigerator storage, this innovative design withstands ice bucket humidity and adds a new dimension to our serving ritual.
