Dom Ruinart Rosé 2004

The Silken thoroughbred

It was the year 1959 that had the privilege Of the first cuvée Dom Ruinart, a blanc de blancs developed as an ode to the great Chardonnays, which was then released in 1966. 
A rosé Cuvée Dom Ruinart soon followed with the 1966 vintage, which went on to be sold in 1973. Since then, Dom Ruinart Rosé has been a shining example of the Champagne house's expertise.

Dom Ruinart Rosé 2004

THE BLEND WAS MADE USING 81% GRAND CRU CHARDONNAY AND 19% PINOT NOIR MADE INTO RED WINE. 

Dom Ruinart Rosé encapsulates a balance one would believe to be impossible: a classic, yet velvety style of Champagne: Intense, delicate and aromatic, all at once.
Dom Ruinart Rosé is always a unique blend. Composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir vinified as red wine, it has the character of a « blanc de blancs rosé ». Don’t be misled into thinking that the high proportion of red wine means this wine has a deep colour.
The cellar master vinifies the Pinot Noir, not looking for colour or tannins, but for aroma. Dom Ruinart Rosé is undoubtedly one of the most delicately aromatic rosés in existence.
This constantly classic Champagne is defined by its layers of minerals laced with smoke. A pink Champagne does not evolve at the same tempo as red wines of the same age. Flavors of the East draw you in with their complexity of exotic spices. Refined wild sea rose and a hint of dried rose petals hover on the surface of the Champagne and unfurl on the palate.
This brilliant expression with its ever so subtle sweetness is the result of a surprising balancing act: The creamy texture and classic style come together to represent a pedigreed wine. Dom Ruinart Rosé 2004 follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, the unparalleled 1998 and 2002, followed then by all those of its ancient lineage.

THE PRIMARY AROMA OF THIS VINTAGE CHAMPAGNE IS SURPRISINGLY INTENSE AND COMPLEX
