Champagne Ruinart Rosé NV

Champagne, FranceRuinart was the first Champange house to produce rosé champagne, back in the 18th century. Today's incarnation sources 45% chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards, and 55% pinot noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne, 18 to 19% of which is still wine, and all 1er cru. Reserve wines from the previous 2 years make up 20 to 25% of the blend. After approximately 3 years on lees, this is disgorged with 9 g/L. Lively and vibrant on the palate, with wild raspberries, tiny strawberries, red currants, perfumed plum blossoms, lit with a brisk rhubarb acidity, and lined with a fine chalky lattice that continues on the lingering finish. The core is gently plump via lees, and buzzing via chalk. A classic beauty.Tasted: 31 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 130.00 LCBO BC 117.00 private wine shops Producer: Ruinart ChampagneDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
