Ruinart Rosé Champagne
Champagne Blend /12% ABV / Champagne, France
Dessert - Fruit
Since its foundation in 1729, the first established House of Champagne has taken pride in the excellence of its cuvées. The Ruinart taste bears the signature of Chardonnay, the thread that runs through all its blends and produces pure and intense wines of remarkable aromatic freshness. Born in 1764, Ruinart Rosé is the gourmet expression of the Ruinart taste. The Chardonnay provides finesse, elegance and freshness; the Pinot Noir provides a subtle fruitiness. Blend constructed on a base of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, mostly classified as Premiers Crus with 25 to 30% coming from reserve wines from the previous two years. 45% of the Chardonnay is from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards 55% of the Pinot Noir is from the Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne vineyards, 18 to 19% of which has been made into red wine. Ruinart Rosé is a champagne to be enjoyed in good company, and a delight to drink throughout a meal from aperitif to dessert. It makes an excellent complement to fine Italian prosciutto (thinly sliced San Daniele or Parma). A starter of salmon, served mi-cuit or as Japanese style tataki, will bring out the many facets of this champagne.View all products by RuinartCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

You can definitely taste the Pinot Noir in this brut rose. It has a wonderful complexity of flavor, on top of millions of tiny bubbles. There's almost a dry red-wine finish. We did not drink this with food, and I enjoyed having it without any competition.
The Ruinart Champagne Brut Rosé features a delicate fragrance of roses, spices, red fruits, exotic fruit and freshly turned earth. This sparkling wine is an elegant blend of French chardonnay and pinot noir to balance freshness and body. Workers harvest the grapes manually to preserve their flavor, then Ruinart Champagne Rosé undergoes a fermentation process in thermoregulated stainless steel casks. Then, the winemakers start a malolactic fermentation to create the bubbles we all love.
If you want to surprise your date, pair the champagne with prosciutto crudo di San Daniele or Parma, salmon, lamb or veal. Shop Driz or click these links to search for us in your city, or find liquor stores on Drizly near you.
