The Story

The chardonnay is the very soul of Ruinart. The grape, mainly harvested from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, is at the heart of all our cuvées.

The ephemeral, delicate structure of this vintage combined with outstanding freshness, typical of the House, offers the potential to complement very sophisticated dishes such as sea bream ceviche Peruvian style, or a lobster carpaccio with lemon caviar and coriander oil.

The Dom Ruinart 2004 would further benefit from cellar ageing to be enjoyed following several years’ maturation. It will then complement dishes with more intense flavours.

Written Notes

This glorious vintage seldom disappoints one. Ruinart’s 79 is very personal despite its classically toasted fundamental tone. The aroma is outstandingly floral with an extremely finely tuned spectrum of all of nature’s most beautiful nuances. The fruitiness is composed of aromas very like beef tomato and red currant. The tannins are gorgeous and the length monumental. Perhaps the best Dom Ruinart I have tasted and the the world’s next best blanc de blancs, according to the jury at the Millennium Tasting.
