Why you’ll love it?
Dom Ruinart 2008 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.
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.
