Chardonnay is the very soul of Ruinart.
The grape, mainly harvested from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, is at the heart of all their cuvées.
The blend is 100% Chardonnay from various years (20 to 25% of which are reserve wines from the 2 previous years).
At first very intense on the nose, with fresh fruit notes, particularly ripe citrus fruits.
A second refined floral nose with notes of white flowers and fruits (white peaches, pineapple). A supple, harmonious attack on the palate, very rounded. Vinosity that is not excessive, supported by excellent freshness.
A perfect champagne for aperitifs. It is also an excellent complement to seafood and shellfish, perfect with a sea bass or bream tartare. It would also be very good with seared sole.
