Ruinart were the first Grande Marque to produce Rosé Champagne in 1764. Today's Rosé is the result of more than 250 years of perfectionism. The Ruinart Rosé is a blend of 45% Chardonnay and 55% Pinot Noir of which 18% is still wine fermented in oak.
Ruinart Rosé is the expression of two grape varieties blended in total harmony, with a silky, generous feel on the palate. The chardonnay provides the Rosé with exceptional aromatic freshness while the Pinot Noir offers intense color and delicate aromas of red fruit, with the unexpected addition of exotic fruits. 9g/L dosage.
The colour is a delicate pomegranate pink with very slightly orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent foam.
The nose is subtle and fresh, first offering an original palette of tropical fruits (guava and lychee) and small berries (raspberries, cherries and wild strawberries) in the first instance. These are followed by rose and pomegranate notes which complete the complex, intense aromatic profile, dominated by somewhat undeveloped primary aromas.
On the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The aromas of freshly picked berries are fully expressed. The balance brings together a delightful freshness and voluptuous body, expressed by an elegant bracing touch of mint and pink grapefruit.
