Unveiling Elegance: A Detailed Tasting Note for Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV

The General Wine is proud to offer the exquisite Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV, a champagne renowned for its purity, finesse, and timeless character. This detailed tasting note will guide you through the sensory experience of this exceptional blanc de blancs, exploring its aromas, flavours, and ideal food pairings.

A Legacy of Chardonnay: The Heart of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV

Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV is a champagne crafted exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, meticulously sourced from prestigious crus (vineyards) in the Côte des Blancs region. This commitment to Chardonnay defines the wine's style, emphasising elegance, minerality, and a delicate balance.

Unveiling the Bouquet: A Symphony of Aromas

As you raise the flute and the first wisps of aroma reach your nose, prepare to be captivated by the captivating fragrance of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV. Delicate notes of white flowers, such as acacia and jasmine, mingle with hints of citrus fruits like grapefruit and lemon zest. Underlying these primary aromas, a touch of minerality emerges, reminiscent of chalk and flint, adding complexity and intrigue. As the champagne opens further, subtle hints of brioche, honey, and marzipan, hints of its time spent ageing on the lees (spent yeast cells), may also grace your senses.

On the Palate: A Tapestry of Flavours

The first sip of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV is a revelation of finesse and balance. The creamy mousse, a hallmark of quality champagne, caresses the palate, while the flavours unfold with remarkable precision. The citrus notes from the nose translate beautifully, offering a burst of freshness alongside a hint of white orchard fruits like pear and apple. The minerality, ever-present, adds a touch of salinity and depth, while the subtle yeasty notes from lees ageing contribute a touch of richness and complexity. The finish is long and elegant, leaving a lingering impression of purity and refinement.

Food Pairings: Bringing Out the Best in Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV

Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV's versatility makes it a perfect companion for a variety of culinary delights. Here are some suggested pairings to elevate your dining experience:

  • Seafood: The wine's natural affinity with Chardonnay makes it a dream match for fresh seafood. Pair it with oysters, seared scallops, or a delicate white fish dish.
