Ruinart's Blanc de Blancs Brut is a chance to enjoy nearly three hundred years' experience in champagne.
The recipe contains a high proportion of premier cru grapes from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards for elegance in the aromas, with extra body from Sézannais wines and dancing freshness given by grapes from the north of the Vesle valley.
Those premier cru grapes yield concentrated fresh fruit aromas of sun-warmed citrus that broaden into a whole palette of appeals to the senses, with delicate floral scents and richer suggestions of juicy nectarines and pineapple.
The flavours are subtle suggestions of fresh fruit, vibrant but shapely, and all elegance. Of course there are streams of fine bubbles, showing countless changing shades of gold in the glass and persisting as you sip.
A blanc de blancs is the perfect aperitif or toasting wine, but if you are careful about your food matching you can show it to advantage alongside fine fresh fish or seafood, simply prepared.
An innovative second skin case, made from paper and nine times lighter than the traditional gift box, offers a visually striking and significantly carbon-saving presentation.

Orders of €150+: free delivery nationwide (*excludes orders containing grande marque champagnes)
All other orders: €15 nationwide flat rate
Orders are usually dispatched in the first two working days after receipt.
We cannot guarantee delivery on a given day. If the delivery date is important, please let us know, and we'll put one of our 'Not to Be Opened Before' stickers on the box and aim for delivery a day or two early.
Your orders are delivered by courier to ensure fast and reliable delivery of each carefully packaged consignment. Because nobody likes breakages, we use very strong and secure packaging specially designed to protect wine bottles.
Personalised champagne orders are dispatched to anticipate your requested deadline (see above), or otherwise as soon as possible. Please allow at least one extra working day for these orders to be prepared.
*The only general exception to our free delivery policy is in the case of grande marque champagnes: champagnes from global brands not imported direct by Bubble Brothers. These attract a standard delivery charge.
The ideal delivery address has someone available to sign for parcels during office hours, so a work address may be a better choice than a home address. An Eircode eliminates any doubt about the delivery location, and you can find or check Eircodes here.
Phone numbers please
Our couriers do their best to deliver and often have amazing local knowledge, but in the event of difficulties a reliable telephone number for the recipient makes all the difference and is a required piece of information. A mobile number is usually best.
Track your order
When we dispatch your order, we send on a tracking code so that you can follow your order in transit on the courier's website.
Delivery outside Ireland
If you need delivery to Northern Ireland, our €15 standard rate applies, with orders of €150 and more travelling free—for the time being.
We do not generally send wine overseas because of the complicated bureaucratic requirements and very high cost. If you would nonetheless like more information about deliveries outside the island of Ireland, please ask.
Wine is a natural product: its variety is what makes it so interesting!
Sometimes, though, a faulty bottle turns up. It's rare, but it does happen.
We want you to enjoy the wines you buy from us, and we'd like you to enjoy doing business with us too.
If you are unlucky enough to receive a bad bottle, please let us know immediately by calling the office on 021 431 6000 and we'll issue a credit in compensation.
Broken or Damaged Deliveries
Despite our best efforts to wrap and pack securely, damage in transit occurs from time to time.
If there's a breakage, our couriers will normally return the whole fragrant mess to us straight away.
If, however, the damage isn't apparent until you open the box, we'd still prefer to have the whole parcel collected. We'll send you a replacement as soon as possible.
