Characterised by rounded flavours of ripe fruits, this is juicy yet elegant with a very long finish. Ever in the shadow of it's flashy stablemate the Blanc de Blancs, this should not be overlooked as it is cracking in its own right! L&S (Nov 2007)

Bready nose with some real interest. Solid stuff – something to get your teeth into, in a good way. Very clean and neat and tastes as though it had quite a bit of age on lees. Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com
This shows its class amongst a swathe of mediocre champagnes. The nose is tight but tense with a touch of green apple and blackberry leaf. The palate is a little subdued at first, but give it a few swirls and you get a sense of nervosité and minerality. It could do with a little more length but it still hits the spot.

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.
