Founded in 1729, making Ruinart the oldest Champagne house, and still to this day one of the very best Grandes Marques available. We have found that Ruinart has a very strong and loyal following, and the introduction of the non vintage Blanc de Blancs to the range an inspired move. It is a truly sublime wine. Owned by the luxury giant LVMH (along with Moet, Veuve and Krug) it is unfortunate that prices have risen over the past few years to the levels that they now stand. However, it cannot be denied that quality has remained very high, and all their wines come in very attractive gift boxes - without being the sort that you feel you are paying too much for, or being wasteful. In short, the wines speak for themselves.
