Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 crowned best champagne in the world!

La Maison Ruinart won three awards for its Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs2010 at the 9th Championnat du Monde de Champagne et de Vins Mousseux. In particular, it was awarded the title of Supreme World Champion, as well as Best Champagne and Best French Sparkling Wine. The blend is composed entirely of Chardonnay grapes from Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the northern slopes of the Montagne de Reims. This wine is the result of a difficult growing season and a major change in the corking process.

Journalist, writer and critic Tom Stevenson created the World Champagne and Sparkling Wine Championships in 2014 to recognize the world's most outstanding sparkling wines. The competition publishes an annual guide showcasing the best champagnes and sparkling wines to guide consumers and industry professionals.

The top prize for 2021 was awarded to Dom Ruinart Rosé 2004 in magnum. The competition jury, which includes renowned wine specialists such as Tom Stevenson, Essi Avellan and George Markus, conducts blind tastings.

The 2022 winners were announced in London, including Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010. Frédéric Panaïotis, cellar master at Ruinart, said that "this award pays tribute to the visionary spirit of the men and women who contribute, over time, to the excellence of our wines, from the vineyard to the cellar."

The expert oenology teams at Ruinart made the strategic decision to reintroduce corking for the House's prestige cuvée, Dom Ruinart, with the 2010 vintage. The titles of Supreme World Champion, Best Champagne and Best Sparkling Wine of France testify to their intuition. Experimental corking of the cuvée began in the 1990's and has enabled the aromatic complexity of Blanc de Blancs to be enhanced, while preserving its freshness and dynamic tension. The 2010 harvest, which suffered from climatic difficulties, contributed to the unexpected aromatic complexity of the champagne. In addition, Dom Ruinart 2010 owes its excellence to its ten-year aging in the white chalk pits of the Maison Ruinart in Reims.
