• Small production and sophisticated flavor for in-the-know wine lovers.
Blanc de Blanc
Made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, from all Premier Cru vineyards, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is supple and round on the palate. Blended from multiple vintages, it is a balanced wine with a beautiful luminous pale gold color.
Ruinart Rosé is a fine, elegant Champagne that retains the characteristic Ruinart taste due to a high concentration of Chardonnay grapes. A plush, balanced wine with an iron red hue, Ruinart Rosé makes an ideal evening aperitif.
Dom Ruinart, the visionary spirit of the oldest Champagne House, was the inspiration for this exceptional cuvée. It is a rare expression from the most noble of Chardonnay vineyards, a magical experience, a genuine feast for the senses.
Dom Ruinart Rosé is a unique blend for a Rosé Champagne, based mainly on Chardonnay grapes: a blend of 84% Grands Crus Chardonnay and 16% Pinot Noir Grand Crus which are vinified as a red wine before being blended.
