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.

Vintage 1998

Dom Ruinart 1998 is a tribute to Chardonnay, assembled using Grands Crus Chardonnay grapes exclusively from the Côte des Blancs (66%) and
the northern slopes of the Montagne de Reims (34%) the historic soil for Maison Ruinart assemblages.

The first aromas are classically elegant, with refined mineral notes joined
by fruits from a bountiful orchard composed of greengage, peach, pear, kumquat, bergamot and mango, followed by wafts of fresh pastry and
acacia honey, a foretaste of sweetness and rich aromas.

On the palate, the wine is silky, with balance and an infinitely long finish.

Dom Ruinart 1998 is a tribute to the Ruinart Taste.

Written Notes

1998 Dom Ruinart 90 94 Very pleasant, but too tiny at present. The lovely subtle spectrum is here however, that blooms so beautifully in the mature condition. So hold on and allow the faintly flowery tones go over into more interesting tones, and await increased concentration and intensity. The toasting could already be discerned in February 2009, and is even more apparent today.

Dom Ruinart  Blanc de Blanc 1998 (magnum) Quite evolved and mushroomy on the nose but very lovely creamy texture nevertheless. Fresh high acidity and seemingly quite evolved aromatically but less so on the palate which is a little flat. 18
