    risotto al radicchio

The blend was made using 81% Grand Cru Chardonnay, 69% of which comes from the Côtes des Blancs (Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) and 31% from the Montagne de Reims (Puisieulx, Sillery), with the addition of 19% Pinot Noir made into red wine, coming only from the Sillery cru. 

This fine rosé champagne is based on the Chardonnay grand cru and will acompany both a seafood theme (salmon tataki, marinated tuna, etc.) and a turf-based dish (poultry and veal in particular). With several years of additional ageing, it will pair with the same ingredients but with more intense, spicier and warmer flavours.

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 2004

Dom Ruinart Rosé encapsulates a balance one would believe to be impossible: a classic, yet velvety style of Champagne: Intense, delicate and aromatic, all at once.
Dom Ruinart Rosé is always a unique blend. Composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir vinified as red wine, it has the character of a « blanc de blancs rosé ». Don’t be misled into thinking that the high proportion of red wine means this wine has a deep colour.


The cellar master vinifies the Pinot Noir, not looking for colour or tannins, but for aroma. Dom Ruinart Rosé is undoubtedly one of the most delicately aromatic rosés in existence.
This constantly classic Champagne is defined by its layers of minerals laced with smoke. A pink Champagne does not evolve at the same tempo as red wines of the same age. Flavors of the East draw you in with their complexity of exotic spices. Refined wild sea rose and a hint of dried rose petals hover on the surface of the Champagne and unfurl on the palate.


This brilliant expression with its ever so subtle sweetness is the result of a surprising balancing act: The creamy texture and classic style come together to represent a pedigreed wine. Dom Ruinart Rosé 2004 follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, the unparalleled 1998 and 2002, followed then by all those of its ancient lineage.

Inside Information

THE OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE

Since sparkling wines from Champagne first appeared in the early XVIIIth Century, they have been drunk fairly cold, between 6 and 8 degrees. So for over a century, bottles of Ruinart have been served in elegant little containers called "champagne coolers" or in silver or porcelain buckets that are always full of water and ice. The ice was collected during the winter and stored in ice cellars.

Around 1830, it became fashionable to drink champagne frappé: very cold, at 2 or 3 degrees. This was a time when wine had a lot of sugar added, which did not ferment, and cooling toned down its sweet flavour. The bottle was served in a bucket filled with ice but no water, sometimes even plunged up to its neck in a mixture of crushed iced and potash or salts. Today, we have returned to the customs of early champagne enthusiasts and enjoy our champagne at between 6 and 9 degrees.

As a guide:
"R" de Ruinart, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs and Ruinart Rosé should be opened at a temperature of between 6 and 8 degrees so that it can be drunk at between 8 and 10 degrees. A vintage Ruinart should be opened at between 8 and 10 degrees and drunk at between 10 and 12. Dom Ruinart Blanc: opened at between 9 and 11 degrees and drunk at between 11 and 13. Dom Ruinart Rosé: opened at between 9 and 12 degrees and drunk at between 11 and 14.

These guidelines can be adapted to the circumstances. On a terrace in summer, a flute of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs will naturally be served very cold. Time and preference will guide the decision...
