Its warm colour reveals a beautiful pink tint with delicate amber and copper highlights. Its clarity and brilliance are a perfect match for its delicate, light bubbles.
The initial fruity and delicate aromas become opulent as they take on more warmth. Its elegant finesse promises great ageing potential.
The promise on the nose is quickly confirmed on the palate. The notes of red fruits, liquorice and citrus are attractively balanced in just the right proportions. The highly vertical palate has great length and excellent persistence.
Dom Ruinart Vintage Rose is composed of 84% Chardonnay and 16% Pinot Noir.
The Ruinart House was officially created on 1st September 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart, a bold entrepreneur. In penning the founding document, he was realising the dream of his uncle, the Benedictine monk Dom Thierry Ruinart, to make Ruinart the first Champagne House. Down the centuries the House has always fostered a culture of excellence, as embodied by the fundamental values of authenticity, openness, refinement and quality.
This quest for perfection is particularly illustrated by the predominance of the Chardonnay grape, which is included in the composition of the whole Ruinart range and of the prestigious Dom Ruinart champagnes, flowing through them and enhancing them like a golden thread. The Chardonnay illuminates all these wines, exalting their brilliance and creating the particular fluidity that makes them so distinctive. These qualities have perpetuated Ruinart’s culture and style over the years, making it today the aesthete of champagne that is recognised the world over.
Since 1729, Ruinart has been creating its champagnes in the same spirit of innovation, purity and timeless elegance – it is this ‘Signature’ which has become a characteristic trait of the oldest champagne house. Full bodied, supple and extremely smooth, Ruinart champagnes combine delicacy, and subtle freshness. The Ruinart taste is a radiant alliance of the distinctive flavours of the predominant chardonnay – the elegance of the grapes from the Côte de Blancs and the character and body of those from the Montagne de Reims.
With the finest grapes, skilful blending, extensive ageing in its 2000 year old cellars, and a uniquely shaped bottle, Ruinart defines its commitment to excellence and luxury.
Inspired by Dom Thierry Ruinart, founder of the House, the Dom Ruinart cuvees are made from the finest Chardonnay wines.
The charm and complexity of the Dom Ruinart Vintage Rose reveals itself beautifully with a seafood pairing.
Dom Ruinart Rose marries perfectly with American-style lobster or crayfish, foil-wrapped red mullet, or lightly cooked veal liver. Alternatively this wine will accompany a gourmet cheese platter. A semi-aged mimolette or goiuda would make a particularly elegant association.
To end on a sweet note, a delicate mirabelle tart or a red-berry crème brulee will gently unveil the vintage’s fruity accents.
