Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV 6 Champagne Case
£57.95 per bottle
Although this Champagne suggests a richness normally associated with Pinot Noir, it is a white from white grape champagne, based on chardonnay. It exploits the particular character of the grapes from the terroir east of the Mont de Reims where Ruinart has long held established vineyards where Chardonnay grape is cultivated.
The clear bottle sets off the luminosity of this pale gold champagne. Introduced in 1997 it is fresh, but rounded, and highly suggestive of the character flavours which reference the precisely located vineyards.
