The refinement and aromatic richness of a vintage champagne

The property

Ruinart, the very first Champagne House founded in 1729, is an essential reference. The historic Ruinart Champagne House owes its creation to the visionary and pioneering monk, Dom Thierry Ruinart. Located in the heart of Reims, the Ruinart House watches over a treasure. Unique, historical landmarks and architectural prowesses, the Ruinart chalk quarries have been classified as a historic site since 1931 and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2015. Located at nearly 40 metres below ground, in the dark and cool cathedral-like cellars, the precious bottles wait to be brought to light. Elegance, style and timelessness define the DNA of the Ruinart Champagne House, which is one of the most valued brands in France, embodying the excellence of the French ‘’art de vivre’’ in all four corners of the world.

The wine

Produced exclusively from the prestigious terroirs of Champagne, namely the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, this Ruinart 2015 "R" vintage champagne is, through its vivacity, freshness and refinement, the epitome of the Ruinart taste.

The vintage

The 2015 vintage was marked by a severe drought during the vegetative cycle. The hot and dry conditions at the beginning of August were offset by a humid second part of the month with cooler temperatures.

Vinification and ageing

The hand-picked grapes undergo alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged on laths for 5 years. The dosage for this cuvée is 6g/l.

The blend

Chardonnay (44%)

Pinot Noir (44%)

Pinot Meunier (12%)

R de Ruinart 2015: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

A beautiful golden colour with subtle green highlights.

Food and wine pairing

The freshness and structure of Ruinart R de Ruinart 2015 will complement scallop carpaccio with Daikon radish, soft-boiled eggs with watercress butter and parsnips, or poulet de Bresse served with linden-infused juice served with roasted turnips.

Garde

Enjoy today, this vintage champagne can be kept in the cellar for many years to perfect its maturity.
