R de Ruinart NV Brut Champagne: Epitome of freshness and balance: Best price for Members: case of 6 bottles delivered: currently unavailable
R de Ruinart NV Champagne is the epitome of freshness and balance, with generous proportions of Chardonnay (40%), Pinot Noir (50 to 55%), and Pinot Meunier (5 to 10%). Delicate yellow in colour, there are golden glints and a crystalline brilliance make this an extremely attractive Champagne.
The nose is delicate and fruity, displaying dominant aromas of lush pear, apple and blossom combined with notes of hazelnut and almond.
The palate is rounded, full bodied and balanced, with flavours of greengages and nectarines. The finish is long and fresh as the Chardonnay shines through.
The grapes used to create this delicious R de Ruinart come mostly from Côte des Blancs, a chalk-rich area famous for its superior Chardonnay, and Vallée de la Marne, which grows the Pinot Noir and Meunier that add a soft fruitiness to the Champagne. The cellar master also adds 20-25% reserve wine from the two years prior.
