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.
RUINART BLANC DE BLANCS EMBODIES THE PURITY OF CHARDONNAY FROM WHICH IT IS EXCLUSIVELY MADE. MADE PRIMARILY WITH PREMIERS CRUS FROM THE CÔTE DES BLANCS AND MONTAGNE DE REIMS TERROIRS, IT IS INTENSELY AROMATIC.
The nose is powerfully reminiscent of fresh fruits with dominant notes of citrus and exotic fruits, followed by a touch of jasmine, white peaches and pink peppercorns.
The blend is 100% chardonnay from various years (20 to 25% of which are wines reserved from the 2 previous years).
A large majority of Premiers Crus from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards for aromatic refinement, supplemented by Sézannais wines known to provide maturity. Finally, several wines from the north of the Vesle valley give a light, fresh touch.
