R de Ruinart Brut, AOC Champagne NVRegular price €85.00
Champagne Ruinart is the oldest established champagne house, dating back to its foundation by Benedictine monk Thierry Ruinart in 1729, and its wines are particularly renowned for their fresh, mineral Chardonnay influence.
Initial aromas of pear and russet apples expand to include hints of flowers, fresh nuts and a little spice. After a while, notes of brioche and biscuit lend depth to this aromatic intensity.
The ‘R’ is a balanced, full-bodied wine, with direct and vigorous fruit flavours and tiny, fine bubbles. There's a long finish characterized by elegant, energetic lightness.
It's a beauty all on its own, but if you are planning to serve yours with food, we'd suggest keeping it simple with delicate flavours and unfussy preparation.
