Why you’ll love it?

Dom Ruinart 2006 is made entirely of chardonnay Grands Crus: 63% from the Côte des Blancs (predominantly Chouilly, Le Mesnil and Avize) and 37% from the northern slope of the Montagne de Reims (predominantly Sillery and Puisieulx). This is a perfect combination giving this vintage its ephemeral, delicate structure.

Lush, fresh and aromatic, the 2006 vintage is a classic example of the Dom Ruinart blanc de blancs style. Its delicate balance and airy equilibrium set this refined champagne apart. 

The maison’s 23rd Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs vintage, this cuvée has been aged on lees for nine years to develop its full aromatic complexity. Its slight sweetness comes from a low dosage. Our wines are sourced directly from the Champagne house so quality is guaranteed.


Tastes Like?

A pale yellow, with green and silver glints. Subtle and elegant aromas of nectarine, citrus and lily of the valley progress into a more intense floral bouquet, peppered with spice. On the palate, this champagne’s natural sweetness is complemented by a refreshing acidity and delicate toasted brioche notes, characteristic of the Dom Ruinart style.
