    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 delicate, fragile Chardonnay will only display the full breadth of its aromatic richness after a slow maturation in the coolness of the Crayères (our chalk cellars): up to 3 years for non-vintage wines, and 9 to 10 years for a Dom Ruinart.

    Producer

    The House of Ruinart is unlike any other. It was the first established House of Champagne in 1729 and inspired by the intuition of a monk well ahead of his time…founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart in the city of Reims, the year after a Royal Decree in 1728 whereby Louis XV gave his consent for sparkling wines to be shipped in baskets containing 50 to 100 bottles. This opened the gates of Europe to champagne and thus makes Ruinart the oldest Champagne House. 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.

    Region

    Champagne is a region that has undergone profound change in the last few decades. We are finally treating it as a wine instead of a celebratory splurge, the farming has improved exponentially and the explosion of grower Champagnes has lead to increased diversity of style across the region. Of course the ‘Grand Marques’ remain and their prestige cuvees still command a premium, but at the grower end of the spectrum, great purity and value can be found wherever you look. It has always been a region where blending across different vineyards to achieve a house style had been refined to an artform, despite the profundity of Krug’s Clos du Mesnil and Clos d’Ambonnay, many Champenois consider their Grand Cuvee to be their greatest wine. That said, today we are seeing an increasing number of single-vineyard wines and the deep-dive into the regions terroir such as the exciting Côteaux Sud d'Epernay continues. Local Knowledge: A visit to Jacques Selosse and a meal at their restaurant, ‘Les Avisés’ is akin to a religious experience.
