Since its foundation in 1729, Ruinart is the first established House of Champagne and has taken immense pride in the excellence of its cuvées. Every year the Brut and Blanc de Blancs are excellent, but my soft spot is for the electric Champagne Rose.
This astonishing blend of forty to fifty crus combines the freshness of chardonnay with the fruitiness of pinot noir, yielding a versatile and structured rosé, characterized by notes of exotic fruits. It also happens to be the first Champagne Rose ever made in 1764.
It is a blend of both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that have been aged between two and three years. The blend is seamless and tantalizing with no shortage of flavors and aromas. Simplicity and complexity are combined on the palate of this cuvée where freshness is abundant and the wine boasts a ton of structure while still achieving a round, full-bodied mouthfeel.

A gorgeous rosé in a rich, vinous style, this shows a satiny mousse and well-honed acidity, which buoy a detailed range of macerated raspberry fruit, dried apricot, grated ginger, graphite and chopped roasted almond flavors. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2025.
