“Rosé with a generous roundness and delicately subtle structure, which achieves surprising harmony.”
Frédéric Panaïotis, Maison Ruinart Cellar Master.

Ruinart Rosé reveals coral and rosewood hues.
First impressions reveal intense aromas of tropical fruit such as pomegranate, lychee and guava, complemented by floral essences of damask rose and freshly picked red berries. Secondary aromas include hints of warm spices such as tonka bean and nutmeg.
This cuvée’s fresh character is combined with a refined structure and delicate roundness. The elegant finish provides notes of peppermint and pink grapefruit.
Resident Chef Valérie Radou and Cellar Master Frédéric Panaïotis recommend pairing this champagne with oily fish and shellfish. It is also suitable for pairing with charcuterie and more powerful meats like duck. Discover their Duck and Grapefruit Salad recipe.

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.
