Ruinart : Dom Ruinart Rosé 1998

Champagne - Rosé - 12.5° Ruinart Ruinart 1998 3099/98
  • Parker : 92
Dom Ruinart Rosé 1998 offers a nice pink robe with golden and coral glints. On the nose, the bouquet is rich and expressive, releasing floral notes of rose and geranium, with an incredible palette of fruity fragrances. After swirling, Dom Ruinart Rosé expresses its ripeness through warm notes of white chocolate, cream and grapefruit, with a hint of honey. On the palate, the champagne evolves in complexity and roundness, closing on a sweet bitterness.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Ruinart 1998 Brut Rose Dom Ruinart I sampled was noticeably marked in texture and complexity by both its long stay on the lees and considerable time in bottle, not to mention by its significant share of red wine. Sour cherry and rhubarb, rose hip and geranium, smoky black tea and old leather, grapefruit zest and sea water combine for an aromatic performance whose counterpart on a still very sappy and vivacious yet expansive and richly textured palate is satisfyingly long-lasting. The roughly 15% of red Pinot added here to what is essentially the same cuvee as the white Dom Ruinart of its vintage received a longer fermentation on its skins than applied to Ruinart's "regular" rose, which may be one reason for the nutty, meaty depth that comes out in the finish. It certainly helps explain the invigorating sense of apple skin chew and cherry pit piquancy. As so often in the realm of prestige rose, one is being asked to pay an enormous premium vis-a-vis the corresponding white wine, but in this instance you're also paying for considerable additional aging. And this impressive bottling could easily remain so for several more years.
