COUPE OR FLUTE

The champagne coupe, or saucer, is shallow and rounded with a flared lip and a short stem, rather like a water lily whereas the flute is slim, narrow and very tall, like a tulip. With its large surface area in contact with the air, champagne in a coupe quickly loses its effervescence. These glasses were highly prized a hundred years ago, when it was popular to drink Ruinart flat.

The narrow opening of the flute preserves the wine's liveliness and bouquet. Although it existed much earlier, it was only in about 1930 that the flute superseded its broader cousin. Since then the flute has reigned supreme, even though in France it is still "Une coupe!" when ordering in a bar. On some occasions, Ruinart also prefers the standard wine glass which releases a wine's aromas unlike any other.

The Story

Dom Ruinart Rosé presents a vibrant colour, a deep coral with delicate coppery tones.

The primary aroma of this vintage champagne is surprisingly intense and complex; notes of exotic fruits (guava) and citrus (blood orange, lemon), intermingle with floral aromas such as violet and rose, with a touch of musk.  Allowing it to breathe reveals notes of allspice followed by orange blossom, brioche, orgeat, with a base of perfectly ripe red fruits.

Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 will complement to perfection savoury dishes such as soy-glazed squab, wild duck with chanterelles and morello cherries, or even a slow-cooked veal cutlet accompanied by risotto al radicchio.

Vintage 2002

THIS VINTAGE OWES IT UNIQUE CHARACTER TO ITS SELECTION OF GRAND CRUS: 80% CHARDONNAY AND 20% PINOT NOIR MADE INTO RED WINE.

Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 presents a vibrant, a deep coral with delicate coppery tones. Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 offers a fine and persistent effervescence.

The richness of the 2002 vintage boasts exceptional breadth and volume on the palate. It offers a fine fruity, floral and spicy aromatic range. The chardonnay emerges simultaneously as round, precise and subtle. The finish, attractively structured with restrained power, allows the Pinot Noir to shine.

Longer ageing in the cellars will rank it amongst the greatest Dom Ruinart Rosé vintages such as the 1996, 1990, 1988 or the legendary 1976.

Written Notes

Even more Dom Perignon-rosé like than before. Fatter, a bit heavier than most vintages with a major influence by Pinot Noir-tones and with the typical yeast culture that have not been fully roasted yet. The structure is amazing but the aromas are too undeveloped in the current situation.

Good looking normal size bottle. Colour is salmon and medium. On the nose it is open, intense, complex, refined, pure and charming. The taste is fresh, focused, firm, refined, toasty, and dry, and high in acidity, full-bodied, with balanced, complex, concentrated, well-structured structure and youthful. On the palate it is layered and has citrus, coffee, toasty, raspberry, apricot, creamy, cranberry and spice flavours. The finish is long, spicy, vibrant and lingering. This wine is sophisticated and masterpiece. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 10-15 years.

Inside Information

The 2002 vintage was characterised by mild, dry weather.  Both spring and summer experienced wonderful sunny periods.  Even though there was rain at the end of August, the dry wind and fine weather which arrived in September made it possible for the rapes to ripen in excellent conditions. 

Just the right amount of sunshine throughout September meant that the harvest was perfectly ripe while maintaining a very good level of acidity.  The late season was also favourable for crafting excellent red wines; smooth and concentrated.  The blend was made using 80% Grand Cru chardonnay, 72% from the Côte des Blancs (Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) and 28% from the Montagne de Reims (Puisieulx, Sillery) and 20% pinot noir made into red wine, from the Silvery and Verzenay crus.
