Dom Ruinart rosÃ©
Since its foundation in 1729, excellence and know-how are at the heart of the first Champagne Maison. Chardonnay is the very soul of Ruinart. The grape, mainly harvested from the CÃ´te des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, brings elegance, purity and aromatic freshness to all its cuvÃ©es. The balance between its roots and the audacity of its commitments has turned it into an everlasting modern and contemporary Maison. It was the year 1959 that had the privilege Of the first cuvÃ©e Dom Ruinart, a blanc de blancs developed as an ode to the great Chardonnays, which was then released in 1966. A rosÃ© CuvÃ©e Dom Ruinart soon followed with the 1966 vintage, which went on to be sold in 1973.
Dom Ruinart RosÃ© 2004 encapsulates a balance one would believe to be impossible: a classic, yet velvety style of Champagne: Intense, delicate and aromatic, all at once. Composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir vinified as red wine, it has the character of a Â« blanc de blancs rosÃ© Â». It is undoubtedly one of the most delicately aromatic rosÃ©s in existence. This constantly classic Champagne is defined by its layers of minerals laced with smoke. This brilliant expression with its ever so subtle sweetness is the result of a surprising balancing act: The creamy texture and classic style come together to represent a pedigreed wine. Dom Ruinart RosÃ© 2004 follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, the unparalleled 1998 and 2002, followed then by all those of its ancient lineage.
