The colour is a delicate pomegranate pink with very slightly orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent foam.
On the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The aromas of freshly picked berries are fully expressed. The balance brings together a delightful freshness and voluptuous body, expressed by an elegant bracing touch of mint and pink grapefruit.
45% of the chardonnay is from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards. 55% of the pinot noir is from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne vineyards, 18 to 19% of which has been made into red wine. 20 to 25% coming from reserve wines from the 2 previous years.
Its singularity lies in the unique balance of its blend of chardonnay, Ruinart’s emblematic grape variety, and pinot noir vinified as a red wine. The fullness and character of the Pinot Noir consolidates the freshness of the Chardonnay.
