A RECIPE TO BE PAIRED WITH
Ruinart Brut is the very first expression of the Ruinart Taste. The cuvée is characterized by its vibrant clear yellow robe with glints of gold, and its notes of well-ripened stone fruits.
A perfect champagne for aperitifs. It may also be served with refined, light starters such as poached oysters or seared scallops, or with a main dish such as sole meunière, or a tender fowl.
It is also excellent with young cheeses, thus pairing perfectly with the recipe of Valerie Radou's vegetables tart.
The chef explains: "In order to create the best possible wine pairing, I consult with Maison Ruinart's oenological team. Through creative dialogue we create dishes which harmoniously pair with the Ruinart cuvées."
