The chardonnay is the very soul of Ruinart. The grape, mainly harvested frome the CÃ´te des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, is at the heart of all our cuvÃ©es.Â The blend is made up of 40% Chardonnay, 49% Pinot Noir and 11% Meunier, 20 to 25% of which are wines reserved from the 2 previous years.
A vibrant, clear yellow colour with golden reflections. Good brilliance with sustained effervescence and a very persistent foam.Â Frank and direct attack on the palate.
A balanced wine, rounded and full-bodied, with an attack scented with ripe fruits (greengages and nectarines). The finish is long, the well-integrated dosage giving way to the characteristic freshness of the Chardonnay which makes up most of the blend.
