A super-premium Champagne from experts in the Chardonnay style, Ruinart. The wonderful vintage of 2006 has engendered another extraordinary offering, with a poise and gentle richness that is more than just the making of a great Champagne: it is the essense of a great Chardonnay wine. Sourced only in Grand Cru vineyards of the Cotes de Blancs and Montagne de Riems, this top Ruinart is a favourite of the connoisseurs.

Its Origins

Ruinart is a low profile, yet select, Champagne house which is steeped in history. It dates back to the 17th century, the time of the famous Dom Pérignon. It was founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart in the city of Reims, the year after a Royal Decree in 1728 whereby Louis XV gave his consent for sparkling wines to be shipped in baskets containing 50 to 100 bottles. This opened the gates of Europe to champagne and thus makes Ruinart the oldest Champagne House. Nicolas' uncle was Dom Thierry Ruinart, close friend to Dom Pérignon himself and an inspiration behind the creation of this house after the Dom’s death. Its Gallo-Roman chalk cellars are now a UNESCO-classified historical monument and every two years the finest sommeliers in Europe gather there to compete for the Trophée Ruinart.

What The Critics Say

97+/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2006 Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Brut is simply fabulous. In most vintages, Dom Ruinart is a big, ample Champagne that shows the structure of the Montagne de Reims Chardonnay in the blend. The 2006 has plenty of textural resonance and richness, and yet I am also struck by its tension. Both bottles I tasted point to a Dom Ruinart that is quite a bit more polished and sophisticated than it often is at this stage." Drink 2020 - 2046
