Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs
Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2009 is the expression sublimated of the Ruinart taste. It reflects the characteristics of 2009, an exceptional vintage year for chardonnay.
Grapes that have reached a beautiful maturity were picked during the summer of 2009. Despite the extreme summer drought, the climate remains temperate and the grapes ripen in ideal conditions, free from disease. This is what allows the vintage to retain notes of intense freshness. Entirely composed of Chardonnay Grands Crus, 82% from the Côte des Blancs (Cramant, Avize, Chouilly & Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) and 18% from the northern slope of the Montagne de Reims (Sillery), the wine will wait 9 years in the depths of the chalk pits of the Ruinart House, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
To the eye, one sees an intense golden color with almond green reflections. On the nose, one recognizes a fruity register that evokes lemon, apricot and brugnon. Notes of white flowers, fresh almond paste, calisson d’Aix evoke the maturity of the vintage. The whole presents to the palate a beautiful balance, both tasty and lively, but with a long and subtle finish. It is the effect of the combination of silky acidity, the freshness of the stone fruits, and a surprising sapidity.
