Dom Ruinart, Blanc de Blancs, 2002


Dom Ruinart 2002 possesses a strikingly perfumed nose, displaying its 100% Chardonnay Grand Cru fruit through sweet unwaxed lemon, buttered hazelnut, touches of almond, and also fresh porcini mushroom and truffle. On the palate it is intense and creamy, but at the same time remarkably fine. Still youthful, with a mineral backbone that seems to infuse the very fine bubbles while citrus, lemon oil and fresh cut summer herbs garland the long buttery finish. Superb.

Contains Sulphites.

About Ruinart

“Dom Ruinart, always 100% Chardonnay from grand cru vineyards, was created by Bertrand Mure, who was part of the extended Ruinart family. The sources of the base wines vary with each vintage but generally it's about two-thirds from the Côte des Blancs and one-third from the northern part of the Montagne de Reims.” Jancis Robinson
