R de Ruinart 2011


"The Chardonnay grape is the soul of the House of Ruinart."

"The year 2011 was unpredictable and paradoxical, marked by exceptional earliness. Ruinart's 2011 "R" champagne will also surprise you with its non-conformity as well as its fine structure and refined balance between floral and toasted notes."
Frédéric Panaïotis, Cellar Master at Ruinart

Ruinart the oldest Champagne house

About this house

Ruinart was founded on September 1, 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart. His uncle, Dom Thierry Ruinart, a learned Benedictine monk, had an intuition about this new " sparklingwine" from his native Champagne region...

The creation of Ruinart coincided with the birth of the French art de vivre. A genuine culture of goodness and beauty was born, with a focus on fine, elegant, delicate and rare tastes.

Driven by a constant quest for excellence and perfection, Ruinart has made the unique choice of chardonnay, a rare and fragile grape variety, the common thread running through all its cuvées.
