Blanc de Blancs
2007 Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs: Dom Ruinart is crafted entirely of Chardonnay from grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. It is produced only in the finest of vintages. This finely detailed Champagne has an entry of warm buttered toast points laced with star fruits, honeyed ginger and lovely undertones of bright minerality. There is a satiny, almost lanolin texture to this Champagne that persists, revealing its pedigree. The Dom Ruinart has a rich and exotic presentation that lasts for minutes.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs: The official founding of Ruinart was in 1729 by drapery merchant, Nicolas Ruinart. After encouragement by his uncle Dom Thierry Ruinart, this house abandoned the clothing trade and blossomed into a contender in the premium Champagne market. One of my favorites in the Blanc de Blancs category, this finely tuned Champagne has a pale yellow color with a bouquet spring flowers. Freshly picked orchard apples laced with crystalized ginger and lemon oils engage you. It is sleek and racy through the finish.
