Ruinart Blanc de Blanc Non Vintage Brut Champagne.
A touch of class. The Ruinart champagnes are made with more reserve wines than are normal for non vintage wines leading to wines with a much greater structure and body.
This is a dry wine is great as an aperitif.
Blend: Blend of 100% Premier Cru Chardonnay from different vintages.
Appearance: Very beautiful pale golden yellow colour. Beautiful luminosity and striking brilliance. A profuse mousse with a sustained ring of beads.
Nose: An intense first nose with notes of fresh citrus fruit, mainly lime. A very fine and flowery second nose.
Taste: Very supple, round and harmonious palate. Good vinosity. Notes of nectarine, apricot and cherry-plum. Good intensity.
"Blancs is a champagne made solely from chardonnay, the only white variety (bar a few esoteric exceptions) allowed in its production. Chardonnay produces fizz of upfront charm, and Ruinart's version is one of the finest on the market, with an instant hit of cream and lemon zest, followed up by toasty complexity and minerality. This is a serious champagne, but with broad appeal - ideal to kick off Christmas Day revelry."
