As the emblem of the House, Blanc de Blancs is the perfect expression of the Ruinart taste and is comprised of 100% Chardonnay grapes grown primarily with Premiers Crus.

At first very intense on the nose, with fresh fruit notes, particularly ripe citrus fruits.

A second refined floral nose with notes of white flowers and fruits (white peaches, pineapple). A supple, harmonious attack on the palate, very rounded. Vinosity that is not excessive, supported by excellent freshness.

Beautiful pale golden yellow color with gentle green reflections, a vibrant, luminous colour. Active effervescence with a persistent release of bubbles.

- Producer Notes

93 pts Wine Spectator

A graceful Champagne, sleek and finely knit, with a subtle range of nectarine, lemon curd, almond blossom and ground ginger flavors, expanding on the silky mousse. Offers a lingering, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2024

93 pts James Suckling

A very appealing and satisfying style that fully captures the elegance and poise of chardonnay. The aromas here are all based around lemons, grapefruit, honey, fresh floral notes, stone fruits and toasty autolysis – which is somewhat of a signature for this Champagne. The palate delivers a ripe, flavorsome impression of peach custard and lemon crème brûlée. The acidity is nicely placed and the the finish upbeat with vibrant fruit expression. Drink now.

92 pts Vinous

Light yellow-gold. Smoky citrus and orchard fruits on the deeply perfumed, mineral-tinged nose. Offers broad, toasty orange and pear skin flavors with an undercurrent of dusty minerals. Picks up floral and ginger nuances with air, along with hints of iodine and tarragon. Rich yet lively blanc de blancs with powerful back-end lift and finishing grip.

Not Just For Special Occasions!

Brought to you by one of France’s grand heritage houses, Champagne Ruinart was founded in 1729,  and is recognized as the first established Champagne house. It's well-known that Champagne is the traditional libation for making special occasions lively, but one of the best developments in recent years is how it is appreciated for its amazing versatility when pairing with food. Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, this Blanc de Blancs is renowned for its aromatic richness, freshness and exceptional purity. Thanks to at least 3 years of aging, rich fruit flavors glide across the palate -  citrus, apples and apricots lead to a soft layer of buttery brioche. While it is sumptuous as an aperitif, its creamy texture makes for a harmonious duet when paired with lobster, oysters, seafood and cream sauces. With its fine presentation box, it is also a top choice for gifting. To have this within reach for either a special occasion or to elevate a memorable meal at home, Ruinart never disappoints!
