Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 presents a vibrant colour, a deep coral with delicate coppery tones.
The primary aroma of this vintage champagne is surprisingly intense and complex; notes of exotic fruits (guava) and citrus (blood orange, citron) intermingle with floral aromas such as violet and rose, with a touch of musc. Allowing it to breathe reveals notes of allspice followed by orange blossom, brioche, orgeat, with a base of perfectly ripe red fruits.
The richness of the 2002 vintage boasts exceptional breadth and volume on the palate. It offers a fine fruity, floral and spicy aromatic range. The low dosage leaves a final flourish of great purity, expressing the nobility of the grand crus making up this cuvée.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 offers a fine and persistent effervescence.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 will complement to perfection savoury dishes such as soy-glazed squab, wild duck with chanterelles and morello cherries, or even a slow-cooked veal cutlet accompanied by risotto al radicchio. Without question, longer ageing in the cellars will rank it amongst the greatest Dom Ruinart Rosé vintages such as the 1996, 1990, 1988 or the legendary 1976.
80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir
Dosage: 5.5 g/l
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.
