since 1729

the wines

of Maison Ruinart

Since its foundation in 1729, the first established House of Champagne has taken pride in the excellence of its cuvées. The unique shape of its bottle is a tribute to the historic bottles of the eighteenth century.

chardonnay

the golden thread running through the Ruinart Taste

Chardonnay is the very soul of Ruinart. The grape, mainly harvested from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, is at the heart of all our cuvées.

With its fresh aromas, vivacity, purity and luminosity, the chardonnay is the essence of all our cuvées.

The delicate, fragile Chardonnay will only display the full breadth of its aromatic richness after a slow maturation in the coolness of the Crayères (our chalk cellars): up to 3 years for non-vintage wines, and 9 to 10 years for a Dom Ruinart.
