45% of the chardonnay is from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards. 55% of the pinot noir is from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne vineyards, 18 to 19% of which has been made into red wine. 20 to 25% coming from reserve wines from the 2 previous years.
Its singularity lies in the unique balance of its blend of chardonnay, Ruinart’s emblematic grape variety, and pinot noir vinified as a red wine. The fullness and character of the Pinot Noir consolidates the freshness of the Chardonnay.
The colour is a delicate pomegranate pink with very slightly orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent foam.
The nose is subtle and fresh, first offering an original palette of tropical fruits (guava and lychee) and small berries (raspberries, cherries and wild strawberries) in the first instance. These are followed by rose and pomegranate notes which complete the complex, intense aromatic profile, dominated by somewhat undeveloped primary aromas.
On the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The aromas of freshly picked berries are fully expressed. The balance brings together a delightful freshness and voluptuous body, expressed by an elegant bracing touch of mint and pink grapefruit.
THE SECOND SKIN CASE :
A case to preserve the Ruinart's taste integrity until serving. Innovative, authentic and environmentally conscious, the second skin packaging crystallizes the commitment to sustainability of Maison Ruinart.
A SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION
Maison Ruinart puts its leadership role in service of sustainable development.
This approach results from multiple technological challenges, focusing the efforts on a unique material—namely cellulose fibers, or pulped paper.
Where a big gift box made sense in the past, an entirely recyclable cloak composed of 100% natural wood fibers is a more suitable fit today. The sustainable innovation of the second skin case extolls a return to nature and to the natural: it aims to reduce waste and recycle materials without denaturing experience or taste.
