2007 is an extraordinary vintage, and one of the very few in Champagne when the harvest began in August. After a sunny and very warm spring, the months of June, July and August brought rather gloomy weather and heavy rainfall. And yet these cool temperatures did nothing to counteract the vineyard's early and rapid progress, with the grapes quickly reaching full ripeness.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2007 has a deep pink colour with delicate copper glints.
The nose immediately expresses a warm, sunny aroma, edged with roasted notes of coffee and cocoa bean, and mingled with toffee apple and ripe citrus (tangerine, blood orange, kumquat).
On the palate, damson and hibiscus aromas are enhanced with pronounced ripe citrus notes, including blood orange, which echo its olfactory character. The honest and precise impact of the 2007 vintage is impressive on the palate. It brings hints of treesap, with wonderful freshness on the finish.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2007 is beautifully sculpted and lively. Its low dosage under scores the harmony and complexity of the fine wines that have been blended to produce this cuvée.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2007 is perfect to serve with both seafood dishes (salmon tataki, marinated tuna) and meat (Bresse poultry, veal).
A few more years of aging will intensify the wine, and it could be paired with the same ingredients but will express more intense, smokier and spicier notes.
