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 Although it existed much earlier, it was only in about 1930 that the flute superseded its broader cousin.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

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.

 

Blend constructed on a base of chardonnay and pinot noir, mostly classified as Premiers Crus with

20 to 25% coming from wines reserved from the 2 previous years.
45% of the chardonnay is from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards
55% of the pinot noir is from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne vineyards, 18 to
19% of which has been made into red wine

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.

Wine Information

Ruinart Rosé is a truly festive champagne, which is a delight to drink throughout a meal from aperitif to dessert.  It will be enhanced by thin slices of fine Italian prosciutto (San Daniele, Parma, etc.). A starter of mi-cuit salmon, or salmon prepared as a Japanese “tataki”, will reveal its many facets.

For a main course, it will be an admirable accompaniment for a leg of milk-fed lamb or a low
temperature cooked veal fillet.

At the end of the meal it will find its full expression with a berry soup enhanced with an excellent
Modena balsamic vinegar.

Written Notes

“Deep bright cherry red colour. Clean, primary fruity nose of cherries and strawberry jam with attractive gunpowder notes. Rich, round, sweet fruity palate, delivers what the nose promises. Deep berried style but beautifully in absence of any excess tannin.”
