“R” de Ruinart
26th August 2014
“R” de Ruinart is the epitome of freshness and balance with generous proportions of Chardonnay (40%), Pinot Noir (50 to 55%), and Pinot Meunier (5 to 10%. Visually, its radiance is crystalline with a shimmering yellow colour and golden hues. The nose is delicate and fruity displaying dominant aromas of fresh white pear and dry fruits such as hazelnuts and almonds, followed by white flower notes, Viennese pastry and buttered brioche.
The 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 our cuvées.
With its fresh aromas, vivacity, purity and luminosity, the Chardonnay is the essence of all our cuvées.
The delicate, fragile Chardonnay will only display the full breadth of its aromatic richness after a slow maturation in the coolness of the Crayères (our chalk cellars): up to 3 years for non-vintage wines, and 9 to 10 years for a Dom Ruinart.
Paired with Food
Fresh and balanced, an ideal accompaniment to seafood such as warm poached oysters or lightly fired scallops and cheeses like Chaource or Langres.
For the main course, pair with sole meunière, chicken breast or poultry stuffed with dried fruit.
