Ruinart : Dom Ruinart 2002

Champagne - White - 12.5° Ruinart Ruinart 2002 3053/02
  • Parker : 91
  • J. Robinson : 17,5
Dom Ruinart 2002 of the Champagne House Ruinart offers a bright and pale yellow robe, with almond green glints. This champagne effervescence is delicate and lively. On the nose, it first reveals a bouquet strongly evoking freshness and youth through the floral frangrances of linden-tree and the notes of yellow plum, pear, and bergamot. It then expresses aromas of pastry with a menthol freshness. On the palate, Dom Ruinart 2002 shows the breadth of its character and refinement, marked by a silky acidity. Finally, the freshness of its citrus and exotic fruits gives way to a beautiful minerality.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Close to 30% of the Chardonnay that as always (despite the absence of "blanc de blancs" from its label) dominates Ruinart's prestige cuvee comes - specifically in the case of their 2002 Brut Dom Ruinart - from the northern Montagne de Reims, though the rest is from the Cote des Blancs (predominantly Avize and Chouilly). Hints of lees autolysis and heliotrope perfume cap a nose in which very ripe sickle pear predominates. Happily, an efficacious squirt of fresh lime lends refreshing and vivacious acidity to the pear on a lush and gently effervescent palate. Pungently struck-flint and iodine-like notes as well as hints of lightly toasted almond and hazelnut add allure to a generously fruity finish. This might well reward a couple of years' bottle age, though its highly appealing present personality is very much tied up with freshness.
