Maison Ruinart was established on September 1st, 1729 in Reims- which many consider to be the heart of the Champagne region. Nicolas Ruinart drafted the founding charter of the domaine, creating the world’s first every champagne-producing company. Dom Thierry Ruinart, Nicolas’ uncle, was a Benedictine monk who lived from 1657-1709 and was a contemporary of Louis XIV. After leaving Champagne for Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Dom learned of a new “wine with bubbles,” long before it was known as Champagne- this knowledge helped set the stage for his nephew Nicolas and what would eventually come Maison Ruinart.
Today, the domaine is owned by LVMH Möet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA (or LVMH, for short) and has taken sustainable packaging to a new level with a pioneering eco-design for 100% paper packaging that is fully recyclable and molded to fit the emblematic curves of the bottle.
On the nose, subtle and fresh aromas of tropical fruits and small, red berries. Rose and pomegranate notes round out the complex, intense aromatic profile. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a balance of gentle effervescence; the aromatics from the nose carry through with welcomed freshness, elegance, and some added mint and pink grapefruit flavours.
Made from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, 45% of the Chardonnay is from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards and 55% of the Pinot noir is from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne vineyards- 18-19% of which has been made into red wine. 20-25% comes from reserve wines from the 2 previous years.
