Dom Ruinart cuvées, aged with care and patience in Ruinart’s Crayères for nearly 10 years, are stirred and disgorged according to the purest champagne tradition. They celebrate the best harvests and highlight chardonnay, the Maison’s emblematic grape variety. The first Dom Ruinart cuvée was born in 1959. Only 26 vintages have been released since.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2004 is the result of an exceptional year. It comprises a base of 80% of Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2004, blended with pinot noir vinified as a red wine from the same year.
This vintage has a complex and delicate aromatic palate of crisp red fruits with smoky and spicy notes. The magnum format allows for a slower ageing period than the 75cl bottles. It preserves the freshness of the wines longer and develops more intense notes.
Rosé champagne has a very special place in the history of the House. In 1764, Ruinart was the first champagne house to release a rosé champagne, then called «oeil de perdrix».
