Dom Ruinart 2006 is a very pretty pale yellowish green with silvery reflections.
The rather subtle, elegant nose presents a very fresh fruity palate, mixed with floral notes: citron (a very sweet citrus fruit), stone fruit(nectarine and yellow plums), and just ripe white fruit with linden and lily-of-the-valley providing floral notes. The nose continues to develop into a fresh floral register, peppered with several "green" spicy notes.
On the palate these very fresh, delicate notes are found, completed by lightly toasted, brioche aromas, so very typical of the Dom Ruinart style. The 2006 vintage expresses itself in a very gentle, elegant, airy equilibrium, giving a natural sweetness highlighted by a particularly low dosage. The finale offers delightful citrus fruit notes giving a silky, refreshing acidity.
Dom Ruinart 2006 is made 100% entirely of Chardonnay Grands Crus: 63% from the Côte des Blancs (predominantly Chouilly, Le Mesnil and Avize) and 37% from the northern slope of the Montagne de Reims (predominantly Sillery and Puisieulx). This is a perfect combination giving this vintage its ephemeral, delicate structure.
Dosage: 4.5 g/l
Pairing with Food:
Dishes combining a silky texture and sweet freshness go best with the equilibrium of Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2006. White fish or poached shellfish seasoned with herbs, citrus fruit zest and accompanied by a creamy element (cauliflower mousseline, fennel purée, etc.) will provide a delightful pairing.
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.
