About

Founded in 1729, Ruinart is the oldest sparkling Champagne house with a grand history.  Now owned by LVMH, it has 17 hectares (42 acres) of vineyards, mainly in Montagne de Reims but also in Côte des Blancs.  Ruinart produces a range of champagne with blends of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, but is best known for its Dom Ruinart Blancs de Blancs Vintage.  Made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from Grand Cru vineyards, it’s matured for a number of years.  ‘Its succulent ripe fruit develops into full, toasty, smoky aromas after a few years’ additional age in bottle,’ as stated in the Christie’s World Encyclopedia of Champagne & Sparkling Wine.
