Winemaker Notes

On the palate the attack is distinctive and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The balance brings together delightful freshness and a voluptuous body. An elegant burst of peppermint and pink grapefruit rounds out this cheeky palette of aromas.

The nose offers intense notes of exotic fruits (pomegranate, lychee and guava) that develop alongside soft floral essences (rose) and notes of freshly picked red fruits (cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry). These aromas splendidly showcase the wine’s subtle, spicy notes (tonka bean and nutmeg).

Food Pairing

Ruinart Rosé is a delight to drink throughout a meal from aperitif to dessert.

It makes an excellent complement to fine Italian prosciutto (thinly sliced San Daniele or Parma). A starter of salmon, served mi-cuit or as Japanese style tataki, will bring out the many facets of this champagne.

It also pairs well with an exotic main course. An Andalusian gazpacho will awaken its freshness and vivacity; fillet of duck breast cooked rare and served with cranberries will accentuate its harmonious complexity.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

A classy rosé that glides across the palate, with flavors of raspberry coulis, yellow peach, chamomile and blanched almond that expand on the creamy mousse and linger on the lightly spiced finish, powered by mouthwatering acidity. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

This blends chardonnay (45 percent) and pinot noir (55 percent, of which 19 percent was vinified as red wine). They come together in a lasting essence of roses and wild strawberries, the wine’s fruit complexity amplified by the sensation of acidity, with its fine limestone abrasion. A clean, simple beauty from Champagne.

Decanter
A blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay, and featuring around 25% reserve wines, this is 100% premier cru fruit from the Montagne des Reims and Côte des Blancs. Almost a third of the Pinot Noir was vinified as a still wine. A deep coral colour, this is fresh and youthful, with rounded wild red berry fruit, and hint of rose. With some time in the glass, it develops deeper, complex, more exotic notes, leading to a long and lively finish. Dosage: 8g/L.

James Suckling
The appeal of this excellent rosé Champagne begins with the nose of red berries, ripe nectarine, coriander and red roses. Striking balance of delicate tannins, animating freshness and just a touch of creaminess. Long, very clean and dry finish. The cuvée is 55% pinot noir from Aÿ (some fermented as red wine) and 45% chardonnay. Drink now.
