With its purity, elegance and delicate freshness, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is no stranger to our reports. It's an all-Chardonnay Champagne with a seductively fine, soft texture, apple/pear, lemon and toasted wheat flavours and chalky minerality. Rating: 91 www.thewinegang.com (Dec 2016)
A very appealing style that captures the elegance of chardonnay in a way that is still immensely satisfying. The aromas are all based around lemon, grapefruit, fresh floral notes and stone fruits. The palate delivers a ripe impression, flavorsome and full, with peach custard and lemon brulée. Acidity is nicely placed below. Rating: 92 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Jul 2015)
Good toasty autolysis-induced nose. Extremely brisk and appetising - seems much drier to me than the launch offering in this new, clear flask bottle. Very clean and fresh. Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Sep 2014)

Delicate and floral, with citrus blossom, apple and ginger notes. Nicely balanced, picking up some textural detail on the finish. Ideal as an aperitif. Rating: 90-90 The Wine Spectator, www.winespectator.com
Sitting quietly behind the big names Ruinart is one of those Champagne houses that always seems to over-perform. The Blanc de Blancs is seriously impressive, served in a clear bottle it has a refined, fresh elegant style with a backbone of steely minerality. Will Lyons, The Wall Street Journal
Very clean nose with apple, lemon blossom and a faint hint of pastry. Palate follow with lemon, apples and white flower before finishing with refreshing, lip-smacking acidity. (Athila Roos, The Arts Club) Imbibe.com
This is light, fresh and soft on the palate with pear and almond notes. A creamy style that is drinking well now. Wonderful for an apertif and with canapés such as blinis with smoked trout, crème fraîche and caviar or crab meat and cumin tartlette. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 Gerard Basset OBE MW MS, Decanter
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.
