Why We're Buying

Founded in 1729, Ruinart is the third oldest estate in Champagne behind only Gosset and Henri Giraud. The legendary Champagne house is responsible for one of the region’s most famous prestige cuvées, which is made entirely of chardonnay. The highly appealing and utterly satisfying sparkling wine is a must-have among serious wine investors.

Vinous

The 2006 Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Brut is simply fabulous. In most vintages, Dom Ruinart is a big, ample Champagne that shows the structure of the Montagne de Reims Chardonnay in the blend. The 2006 has plenty of textural resonance and richness, and yet I am also struck by its tension. Both bottles I tasted point to a Dom Ruinart that is quite a bit more polished and sophisticated than it often is at this stage. (AG) 97+
