The Ruinart Blanc de Blancs champagne is made 100% from Chardonnay. Pale golden yellow in colour with gentle green reflections, the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs offers beautiful aromas at different levels, starting with intense fresh fruit notes, particularly of ripe citrus fruits. This is followed closely with a second layer of aromas that are more refined, with notes of white flowers and fruits (white peaches, pineapple). On the palate, the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs shows notes of nectarines, citrus fruits supported by a pleasant mineral quality. This champagne has a long and very refreshing finish.
I have a friend who unabashedly declares her love for Ruinart Blanc de Blancs and I can understand why. The champagne gives off a multitude of aromas that are complex yet inviting. You can put your mind to naming all the aromas that come up (and there are many), or you can simply quieten down and enjoy the ride. For me, the clincher is that this champagne has a very nice creamy texture that fills the mouth but does not dominate the palate. I get a lot of fresh citrusy fruits and minerality that is wrapped within a buttery shell. So with each sip I am getting the total package. I am generally not a big fan of commercial labels, but the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a champagne I unreservedly recommend to customers looking to buy Chardonnay based champagnes.
