R de Ruinart Brut is a champagne that has been crafted from a coupage Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier by the Maison Ruinart winery. These grapes were harvested by hand and Pinot Noir is the dominate grape varietal in this French champagne.
During the vinification process the alcoholic fermentation was realized in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The coupage of this champagne includes between 20 and 25% reserve wines from the previous two years to the base wine grape year.
After this champagne was aged in “crayères”, in the Ruinart House of Champagne´s underground wine cellars, there was liqueur de triage added until this cava had 9 grams of sugar per liter (the total quantity of liqueur de triage after disgorgement).
Elegant and fine champagne brut that you can taste over the next five years.
|Appearance||A clean and bright champagne with an alluring pale yellow colored body and golden reflections. There is a persistent rosary of effervescence that presents fine bubbling columns which are slow to rise.|
Elegant, fine, and fresh aromatic expression that is marked by ripe white fruits, apples, and pears. There are hints of stone fruits, apricots, hazelnuts, and subtle nuanced almonds. There are some delicate floral notes along with spices making for extraordinary primary aromatic expressions. These aromatics soon give way to nuanced ageing notes which present fine pastries and perfectly baked cookies. All things considered, this Chardonnay and Pinot Noir champagne Ruinart presents an excellent aromatic balance with fragrant sensations and complexities.
Blunt, well-balanced, and round, with a grand sensation of meatiness. There are aromatics from delicious and flavorful ripe stone fruits, plums, and juicy peaches. This coupage of flavors is presented along a grand creaminess that supports the effervescence of this wine which is very delicate and melts in the mouth. There is good acidity which is very well-balanced and supports this champagne´s nuanced freshness. The finish is very pleasant and persistent with a pure expression of Chardonnay that immediately noticeable. Ruinart Brut champagne is a very well-balanced French sparkling wine.
