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

The Tasting

The color is pale golden, very bright, with green reflections.

The first nose makes us discover a spring universe with scents of lime, green tea and infused verbena.
The second nose expresses aromas of papaya, white peach and pear.

The palate expresses itself with a light tension that gives the wine an airy character. Notes of white fruits such as pear and spices are intermingled

About this house

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

The creation of the House Ruinart coincides with the birth of the French art of living. It was the birth of a true culture of goodness and beauty that favored a fine and elegant, delicate and rare taste.

Driven by the permanent quest for excellence and perfection, the House Ruinart has made the unique choice of chardonnay, a rare and fragile grape variety, the main thread of all its vintages.
